I stitched this piece from the Subversive Stitching book. This design was the very first cross stitch I ever made... all of, oh, five months ago. I've come a long way in this time - this second version is prettier than the first. to change your image viewing settings please click here
It's for a Christmas present. In case my friend doesn't like it... I put some pretty fabric on the back so she can flip it over.
prefer the back - the fabric's from a vintage table cloth (too stained to use, alas).
I've recently started making my own cross stitch patterns because I feel a little funny about using someone else's (don't ask me why - I don't know). This is still my favourite other people's design though. I also want to know if anyone else has made the same one?
