    Your work is so wonderful that I am almost speechless (Now that would be the day. LOL) I have always admired those who do that type of art. It would be one way for me to go blind for sure. Bless you. Marge

    Yeah, I did some cross stitch too before I found my sanity and tried quilting. Beautiful work but man, oh, man you gotta have alot of patience for this kinda work plus some mighty powerful magnifying glasses and a steady hand.

    I have a very close friend that does cross stitch and she does such amazing work. She did the Last Supper for me plus many others and she enters in the fair all the time winning blue ribbons. She is the one that taught me how to do it but of course I do not have her patience with it and she does not have patience with sewing.

    This was my hobby too - I have the Santa of the Forest one and really like the Lavender and Lace designs. Ever thought of incorporating them into a quilt panel?

    Can you use the counted cross stitch fabric on a quilt?
    I have quite a few Santa's that I cross stitched and was
    thinking of using them for a quilt. The LQS told me the fabric would not work. Has anyone ever tried it?

    Beautiful!!! I used to do cross stitch before I found quilting too! Thank goodness, because I don't think my eyes would be able to do the counted cross stitch anymore!

    I have never seen anything like these. You must have nerves of steel and eyesight of a hawk. I would be blind after all that needle work. Wonderful job.

    Like OMG! I, too, did counted cross stitch before I took up quilting but nothing as fabulous as what you've done.
    They are so beautiful! You have some wonderul pieces. I especially love the tree with Santa and the angels.

    I've never tried it before, but I'll bet it could be done. Perhaps use the cross stitch as a center part of the quilt and frame it, perhaps useing muslin or a nice piece of cotton for the backing of the cross stitch piece and make whatever blocks areound it. I don't think I would wash it though, might cause the cross stitch to draw up.
    I'll bet someone on this board knows that answer or has tried it before. So many smart folks on this board with great ideas and knowledge.
