    In between quilts I finally finished this counted cross design ... only a year in the making! Now back to quilting and completing a few projects.

    Thanks so much for looking!

    Now that was a whole lot of work! I used to do cross stitch and I appreciate the amount of time you spent on that. It is beautiful.

    I have always felt that way, I have even drawn the pic that i want mine to have," the desert with a cacti and a semi tractor"
    I just need to get the courage up to cut the fabric in two inch squares.

    I'm not surprised it took that long. There's a lot of work there and you did a beautiful job. It's gorgeous.

    Beautiful! I do cross stitch, too, and have to take a break and quilt awhile or my eyes go all wonky on me.
    Great job you did! :thumbup:

    Beautiful work. I love hand embroidery,but cross stitches especiaslly counted drive me crazy. Are you going to frame it or use as a focal in a quilt?

    Love that crosstitch. I used to crosstitch too! It is alot of work. You must be proud to have it done in a year. Would have taken me 3 years probably!!

    Beautiful work. What are you going to do with it? Table runner? Frame it? You will have a tough time hand quilting it, but maybe with a machine????
