Hi all, I thought as it has been 3.5months (so I am told REGULARY by dad) I thought i would bore you with some pictures of my passion/hobby CROSSSTITCH.
I have done lots of them over the years and have given them too as wedding presents and bithday samplers. It is such a theraputic hobby and so much fun to see a design appear before your eyes.
Crosstitch is done on AIDA an evenweave canvas of varing sizes, sticthed using a pattern usually with symbols to show you which colour to stitch where. There is NO image on the canvas you have to put it there with stitches.It really is great to do and limbs and eyes willing i will keep crossstictching for many years to come. I would recommend this hobby to everyone it is really rewarding!!!!
Anyway here are a few of the ones i have done since 1998 (sorry the last few are a bit blurred)
The next one measures 8 x 10 inches and took about 10 months to complete.
If you click on the image it will apear alot bigger so you can see the detailing involved..
This the very first one i did in 1993 it measures 14inches by 10 and was a real test but hey i gave up smoking whilst doing it (they kept burning out) and was biten by the bug. (above)
It is far from the quickest hobby in the world but worth every last stitch.
This one has fond memories for me as i finished it while my second eldest boy was in hospital (very rare skin disorder, thats another blog) and i literally finished as he came round from the aneasetic. (above)
So there you have it some of the many pictures i have done over the years
I anyone would like any advice or has a question about Crossticth then dont hesitate to leave me a comment and i will return your message. Thnaks for looking .
(Now off my back father) xxxxx love you xxxx
