Working on a play at the moment and the director decided he'd like a home sweet home cross stitch on the wall. As I had all the stuff I volunteered to make it. Not framed yet.



Metallic Thread drove me bonkers again on this piece, even though there wasn't that much of it used!

Designed the pattern based on a couple of pictures of Victorian Cross Stitched I found online, as the play is set around that era.
