It's not huge (9cm by 9cm), but this is my first hoop. Last night I stitched my interpretation of a borage flower onto leather using blue, gray and silver threads. This morning I realised it's one of my favourite things Smiley

So pretty but I would imagine stitching onto leather is rather unforgiving. No room for mistakes and hard on the hands too. Well done for persevering to create such a lovely flower.

Very lovely. Leather is not easy to stitch on!!! You did a great job, and I love the colors. I had to locate the right ruler to get what the 9 CM thing meant (sorry, American...and we never actually went to metrics here...only sometimes)  Grin That makes it about 3 1/2". Very detailed stitching for that small. I really like it! I hope you keep this one for yourself. You deserve it. Make another one!!!

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

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
