For love of cross stitch and finishes.
Hot off the coat tails of Japanese Garden Mandala, I decided to stitch one of the smaller mandalas. The sparklies are to die for on this one and the blues and greens meld together so beautifully for a serene setting.
I've been meaning to do this for a few years. It's one of DH's favorite animals and the only EMS baby he loves. Since I decided that 2010 will be a year that I'm going to try and stitch projects for loved ones, this was the first one I decided to accomplish. Isn't he too cute for words???!
It's finally framed! This is the Once Upon A Tree Sampler that was featured in 4 parts during 2009 of Just Cross-Stitch Magazine. And those who know me have no problem believing I changed every thread that was called for in the design. The piece was lovely as charted; however, I have a box of various silks and just pulled from the pile. It's hanging in my kitchen and I'm very pleased.
