i miss doing cross stitch. my sis introduced me to it. it gave hope for eternally artistic nincompoops like me. all you have to do is follow the instructions, stitch on the marked boxes and tada! you'll come up with a beautiful work of art... =)

that first piece looked tough!!! i do cross stitch now n then so i know. ;) it's very time consuming but the outcome is worth it.

LOL - "eternally artistic nincompoops"

Sounds like you just described me. Maybe I should take up cross stitch.

But seriously, that is a great looking cross stitch and I agree with mistyeiz, it must have taken a lot of time and patience. I'm sure hanging them in your home was rewarding.

You do beautiful work. I really love the second one. The gold forming the background is very dramatic.

Come by and see mine here.

Those are lovely cross stitch pieces. I think every cross stitch work is a product of skill, dedication and patience.
