Finally finished...

...well after 11 years (yes 11 years) I have finally finished my Lavender and Lace cross stitch which I dreamt of having at the door of the wedding venue I was going to get married in. Unfortunatly that never happened as I never finished it in time so now it will be framed and take pride of place in our bedroom in our new house. So here is the finished cross stitch: Now to get it framed....I wander how long that will take :)

Well I have this kit all wrapped up and ready to start, it was purchased I guess about 10 years ago! You have done a wonderful job and well worth the wait. x

Lou said...

Thank you, I did have years where I didn't do anything to it and it sat in a cupboard, to be honest I really enjoyed finishing it and can't wait to see it up on the wall finally.

Diane, I'm sure you will finish it alot quicker then me :)

Im just awaiting the next one to arrive, its a christmas one and I can't wait to get going with it now I have gotten back into it
