I made this for my partner in the Vintage Halloween Swap. Her decor is mid-century modern. I'm very proud of how this turned out.

Whoa, wow! I'm doing the tiniest little cross stitch right now and it's taking for-ever! And I'm making mistakes despite how hard I try to get each stitch correct. This is one amazing project. Labour intensive and it looks just great. Love the design and the colours chosen, *Rocks*!

Thanks everyone! We were supposed to make a medium but I couldn't resist this design, it had so many elements my partner said she likes. It was pretty labor intensive but it was really worth it.

I make mistakes a lot when I cross stitch craftylittlemonkey, but I just keep plugging away. I really like the look of the finished pieces.

Thanks JaMi, that's a great compliment. Cross stitching is a lot of fun. Just keep at it and you'll get the hang of it.

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

Thanks, KittyKill. I got it off Etsy. It's a lot of fun to stitch, except for maybe those trees. lol

This is amazing, the colours used is really pretty, especially the different shades. I would have loved to get this in a swap, lucky partner Cheesy
