So, you may have noticed no blog posts over the weekend. I was spending so much of my time trying to get my Mother's Day gift finished that I didn't really have time to blog about anything, but I got it finished and spent a lovely day with my mum yesterday, so I thought I should show you the goods.
First up we have this Guess How Much I Love You cross stitch. I started this out on evenweave and I have to say, I hated it. It was driving me mental. Check out this picture, and look how small it would have turned out if I'd kept going on the evenweave. Glad I swapped to aida.
So here's the finished product. I have to say, I'm incredibly impressed with how it turned out. Probably the best piece of cross stitch I've ever done.
I also made this small cross stitch frame, which I got free in a cross stitch magazine (I forget which one).
My hands are a bit of a wreck from a weekend of heavy crafting, but I'm happy with how everything looked when it was done.
Oh and I also have my iPhone now, so I've spent a lot of time playing on that! It's the best.
