Someone stitched this verse on Craftster ages ago, and I always intended to do it myself. Finally I got around to it.



I coloured the aida with thinned down acrylic paint, but the search for the perfect frame still goes on. Maybe just thick branches tied together with twine.

Sorry about the blurry pic. This was the best of the lot.

It's really nice! I like how the painting of the cloth turned out.

The verse is so neat.  Smiley  Your stitching looks great, and the cloth is nothing short of amazing! 

I love it!

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!

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

So beautiful! Love how you did the cloth, between that and the stitching, you really captured the verse.
