finally finished!

I have been working on this cross stitch on and off for the last 5 years or so. Earlier in the summer I decided that I really had to get it finished before the baby came (only a month to go now – eek!!), although I’m still to decide what to do with it. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I’m now plotting future projects, although not cross stitch! i don’t know how much I will be able to do in the next few weeks before everything gets turned upside down by the new arrival though…

As the colours in it are quite autumnal, even if the flower itself isn’t something you’re likely to see at the moment I am going to enter this into the Celebrate Colour competition for needlepoint. Last month had some really amazing entries, so fingers crossed!


  1. Well done, it looks lovely! Cross stitch projects can take so long can’t they?! It’s one of the reasons I’m learning to crochet – I love cross stitch but it would be nice to learn a craft that you can produce a little quicker!

    Hope the final preparations are going well for the imminent arrival – exciting! 🙂

    • Thanks! I do have to admit I haven’t been working on it (anywhere near) continuously over that time. I’m planning to do something else that’s not cross-stitch next and hopefully that won’t take so long!
