Okay.  I've been on craftster for quite a while now, but this is my first project post.  I don't have a digital camera, which is probably why this is so delayed.  Sorry in advance if the pics don't work... I've never done this before...

I love cross stitching!  I've been cross stitching since I was probably 10 or 11, and I'm 16 now.  Some of the things I'm posting are quite old, and don't really do me justice. The things you are about to see are going to be, well, lame.  The pictures don't do them justice as I had to use a scanner.  Anyways, regardless of the shoddy conditions, here they are.

All of the designs are from kits, not my own patterns, which of course makes this more lame.

This penguin was a bit odd because it hardly fit in the frame that came with it... :S Regardless, it is next to a POG to show how tiny it is.

This one looks particularly shoddy because that blurry junk around the edges is actually lace, but the scanner didn't quite pick up on that.  Again, compared to a pog.  This one has some cotton stuffed into it though.  Where as the penguin is flat, this one is puffy!  Cheesy

The Giraffe is all half stitches... POG to compare.  The next two are roughly the same size as the giraffe.

This cow is done completely in half-stitches.

The kitty is also half-stitches.  I love the 'strand' of yarn that is trailing across!

Again, these are some poor examples of what I can do, but hey... it's what I found!

I'm currently working on a much larger project, which I will be sure to steal a friend's camera and post pics for when it's done.  (Don't hold your breath!)  It is a rather large Noah's Ark scene.

It looks like you might be linking to your album instead of your photos, hun.  Try using the URLs of your images from Photobucket.  Smiley
