Hello

My mum saw this on a plate, and thought it would make a nice cross stitch, so I said I would make it for her.  One of my brothers died from cancer 4 years ago, and my parents are religious, so it makes sense.  I used this to make the pattern & got stitching. The words are 2 strands of black back stitched, the picture is one strand only in black, and 2 greys.  The cross is filled with white cross stitch.  





I got it framed today & am quite happy with how it turned out.  C&C welcome  Smiley

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

What a beautiful piece of stitching.  I've seen that quote before and often thought it would make a could embroidery/cross stitch as well.  You did a really lovely job with it:)
