    all so beautiful, i miss counted cross stitch. can't see the small holes anymore.
    they are all stunning!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Just love all of them! Counted cross stitch was my first love...could sit and do it for hours. But after time could only do it for a short time before developing blurry vision. Although temporary it was still annoying. Great use of your cross stitch pieces other than just in frames.

    Kari is so prolific, there is just not enough wall space to hang them all! The picture of Snowflower the cat is showing the back of the Christmas door stopper (the Santa cross stitch is on the front.)

    All of your pieces are beautiful, wish I could see well enough to do crosstitch. I sure do like the furbaby on your cutting mat.

    Sure glad the kitty didn't get stitched in! It's always good to have a "snooperviser!"

    Lovely, one and all! Also love your beautiful cat. Your counted cross stitch is as well done as all your other work. Keep on sharing as I love seeing your work.

    Have you tried the around-the-neck magnifying glass? It might help.

    I love them all. Your quilt inspector seems pooped out after inspecting everything! I love counted-cross stitch. I need to use a magnifier now and only even weave fabric, no more linen, my eyes can't take it. Now I have dueling desires, cross-stitch or quilt????
