This is Paddy

I made this picture in cross stitch a couple of years after Paddy passed away.

this was a photo of him that I had made into a cross stitch chart. it took only a couple of months to make and has pride of place on the living room wall :)

Summer Cat

This project is "Summer Cat"
one of a set of four, and was very enjoyable to do after 5 years of blue, thats why I chose this one with its bright sunny colors. The next project i'm working on at the moment is "Winter Cat" Hopefully it will be finished some time in December :)
Started Nov 22nd 2012 - Finished Aug 1st 2013

Lady of the wolves

Ohh what a project this one was... taking 5 YES 5 years to complete,
it was a project I just couldn't do for too long at a time, although it's a beautiful picture, the continuous different shades of blue made it so monotonous to work on for long periods of time so it was packed away for many months before I forced myself to get on with it, and finally finished it after 5 long years. 
Started 1st feb 2008 Finished 13th november 2012
4 years 9 months!!


This is "Scruff" one of my favorite projects,
I have made this picture 3 times now and should know the chart off by heart lol
I first made it for myself, then some friends saw it and loved it, so I made it again (twice) for birthday gifts.

Gaze-my very first blog post

This is "Gaze" a beautiful picture I made in 2007 and was my first big project. it is stitched on 14 count ada and using DMC threads. I also used a frame to stitch it on, in fact I always use a frame as its comfortable and keeps  the fabric taut, and leaves one hand free to drink tea lol :)
May 7th 2007 - Jan 10th 2008
8 Months work.

happy stitching :)
