    This is a pic of the counted cross stitch carousel horse I made and had framed for my husband. I am finished with the second one and am working on the third. What a pain this series has been.

    Very pretty.

    Cross stitch was my first love.

    Beautiful. I have that book and have yet to finish the one I started years and years ago. I've cross-stitched for over 30 years and find it very relaxing (and portable).

    Cheers, K

    Beautiful.
    I had to give up X-stitching when I couldn't see the holes.

    You really have to be in the mood for this one! I completed 2 and am half way thru the third. Three is it for me. I picked the three I liked the most. It took about 2 years each for the first two, now #3 may take 10 cuz I'm just not that into it.

    Yes, but it is beautiful. I stitch too and I know the work that goes into a piece like this.

    That's very pretty though. It will definately be cherished. My Granny made me a precious moments serious for the seasons which I adore. She also made me several lavender & lace angels...which were true labors of love. Each hangs on a wall in my quilting room, so she's always there with me. Nice work :)

    I'm hoping they'll have those kind of memories. Made them for my DH since we owned carnival games.
