    It looks beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    That is beautiful. Glad you were able to post pictures. I used to cross stitch a lot before I got addicted to quilting.

    I love it too. I have taken several of my cross stitches and made them into quilted wall hangings>

    I'm not a cross stitcher, but I do appreciate the work I see you've done. My sister-in-law has done cross stitch photos of her children. They look like paintings. I did some small things years ago, but my eyes kept wanting to cross. haha I think your work is beautiful.

    Beautiful! I know that it took many, many hours to do that...a true labor of love. I haven't cross-stitched in years but keep thinking that I need to get back at it.....also crocheting and regular embroidery. Just can't seem to get interested in my "old" hobbies since I found QUILTING!

    Well done and Yes....like the others I do know what time and effort goes into such beautiful cross-stitch. Like Jennie, I haven't done much else since I became immersed in Quilting. Though I am doing a Russian Needle-punch piece.....way easier to do than cross-stitch.
