Hello my lovelies!

I just finished this cross stitch today. This is my second cross stitch ever and I was happy to find it easy, fast and wonderful.



Sorry for the poor photo quality. I finished the piece off by finding an old wood frame painting it gray and adding a bit of trim.

Here is my inspiration piece from a talented artist.

That's a great piece and the fact that you described it the way you did is awesome. Cross stitch needn't be slow and cumbersome. I know I've got some works in progress entering their third year, but it's great to knock out a couple of quick pieces here and there.
Great stuff!  Grin

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I love this, both your stitching and the sentiment.

This is really neat and very well done. I'm impressed by the multiple colors in the stitches, I just dont think I would have the patience  Cheesy

Did the artist do it in a cross-stitch like pattern? If so, very cool.
