Hey all...never posted on this board before. Cross stitch was one of the first crafts I got into when I was about 11, and though most of my projects were given as gifts, I decided I'd post some pics of ones I did that are still hanging around. None of them are framed or "finished" so to speak. They've been living in a box since I last moved. Finishing suggestions are welcome Smiley I'd like to do something rather than just frame them. Anyway without further adieu, here we go!

a tiny flamingo I did in an afternoon

pooh bear Smiley

a victorian style house surrounded by flowers. at the time I did it, was my largest (or at least most time consuming) project. so many colors!

another pooh bear...I had a phase.

wee willy winky. I'm super proud of this one, I wasn't sure about the colors when I was doing it but it all came together at the end.

close up of the top half of wee willy winky to show house and text detail.
c&c welcome! and as I said if you have suggestions of what to do with them I like those too!

Oh my gosh, that flamingo is adorable! If you can find a tiny frame that it will fit it, I say turn it into a pendant Cheesy

Ohh a pendant is a good idea! Maybe with some small tropical-looking beads Smiley

Love the flamingo too! A pendant is a great idea.

I should make something like this for my Pops - he's obsessed with pink flamingos but Mom won't let him have any in the yard Smiley.

The house is amazing. I can't even begin to fathom the patience that must have taken to complete! Beautiful!!!

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