    So pretty, very nice work! You did a beautiful job of keeping it square, not letting it get all pulled out of shape.

    Thanks.

    Cross stitch tends to stay squared if you put the same tension on your stitches, because is being pulled on both directions evenly, unlike needlepoint, where only one side is pulled. I don't use a hoop or frame.

    Thanks again for all you comments.

    Beautiful!!! I love the way cross stitch looks, but it gives me a headache to work on an item for very long.

    Nice work! I love to cross stitch too. It's hard to know which to do, quilt or stitch!

    Absolutely gorgeous!

    You should be glad you still have them. I used to cross-stitch but gave all away. Didn't even take pictures of them.

    At least for quilting I have a book with pictures of all!

    Your cross-stiching is breathless.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Those are gorgeous! I used to do lots of cross stitch..now that they started making the patterns so darned small :wink: I can't really do them easily anymore..so I quilt instead. Yours are fantastic....really!!! What are you going to do with them?
