Hi there,

I have been lurking for a very long time and finally decided to post some pictures. The first one was done for a Christmas card and was taken from a pattern in a magazine, which I forgot the name.


And the second one is my first embroidery, it is my own pattern and did it with backstitch, french knot, blanket stitches mostly. I used the carbon paper method which works really great. I washed it by hand and all the lines dissapeared.

Any comments appreciated and thank you again for all the wonderful work you are doing that does inspire me an awful lot !!!

Oh my!  How pretty!  Your flower is lovely and that crosstitch is fab!  Cross stitching takes forever, but it is so nice for stylized designs like your Christmas card.

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