Finished X-stictch project

Back again like a bad penny but since this is a diary of sorts of my crafty creations I need to record my lastest finished Cross-stitch
Everytime I go to Spain I try to pick up one their Cross-stitch magazines even though in Spanish its still squares of colour and list of numbers and easy to work out. But apparently I have these magazines and I was informed never used them so I decided to remedy this by making this scene that was in one of them.
Its quite a large project but there were quite a bit of large areas of the same colours except for the pesky trees.
I have no idea how many man hours it took especially the occasions I've had to unpick some of it and to be honest I don't what to know.

Hi Debby,
Stunning piece of work.
I do cross stitch, the Lavender and Lace designs. My last project of the 3 girls flying kites took me 2 years.
Looks lovely framed on the wall though.

Hi Debby,
What can i say, except "WOW" !!!
What a great job you have done on this - wish i could report such good progress with my own but have to confess that i've not touched it for a while.
Mind you, i think yours has given me some encouragement to keep going with mine.
Super job!! :-)
Mike.

gill said...

This is absolutely gorgeous.I can imagine how long it took to make as I did a x-stitch that took me 4 years obviously more off than on. It does have pride of place in my hallway though so I hope you find somewhere for yours.

Debbie said...

Wow, this is stunning, haven't crossed stitched in ages... and you did it in Spanish no less. Moi Bueno!!!

Hugs
Debbie

Anne said...

SHARY said...

Brilliant Debby!! Lots of hard work gone into that but sooo worth it, looks stunning.

KraftyKaren said...

Fabulous Debby - I really must pull out my cross stitch and do some, I haven't picked up my butterfly afghan for nearly two years now and was asked at the weekend how it was progressing LOL - the answer was very slowly LOL!!!!!

Well done for finishing a project - it will look fab when framed!!

Archies Mum said...

That is lovely, it must have taken you quite a while to stitch it with the amount of detail. I always think the outlines are the worst to do, but it always amazes me on how the picture comes to life. Hope you are going to have it framed now to show off all your hard work

Shelly said...

Oh this is stunning! Well worth the effort Debby, I totally know where you're coming from, I did a half stitch project which took me 2 years to complete!!! And it's pretty small too! I do love cross stitch, but my patience is limited, it just takes me TOO long ;) Well done you on such a beautiful project! Shelly x

Hi Debby!

Tell me please, what fabric you sewed? According to the recommendations of the magazine? Is it 11 count?

Thank you, Tanya

I have noticed that of all forms of insurance, medical insurance is the most dubious because of the discord between the insurance policy company's need to remain afloat and the consumer's need to have insurance policy. Insurance companies' income on well being plans are incredibly low, hence some organizations struggle to make money. Thanks for the tips you talk about through this website.
