I had read about a Free Tibet cross stitching contest on the Radical Cross Stitch forum and really wanted to participate and support the cause. With the help of darklilac.com and my image in mind, I created this:



I made 2 separate cross stitching patterns, one for the Dali Lama and the Tibetan flag, and I made up the dove and text by taking inspiration from the internet (google image search anyone?). Then, I combined all of the patterns using my creativity and math skills. Unfortunately, my ambition got the best of me, and I was unable to finish my cross stitch before the contest deadline- finishing 2.5 weeks too late, just in time for the 2008 Olympics. But not I have this wonderful cross stitch to show off and share with you.
