Ok, I think I am finished with my first cross stitched picture. Heidi, do not inspect it too close.
I am sooooo sure you will find about 50 mistakes. It's ok, I will hang it in my red and white bathroom so it won't be seen too freely. LOL.
I am going to try the bookmark now, I have to keep stitching to be ready for Henry VIII.

I think you did a fantastic job! Congratulations!

Heidi said...

Robin has that right! You are one speedy mover with stitching. Do I need to remind you that you always said you would NEVER start stitching??? Remember that mother??? Humm! Okay I love this and I will start kitting up the things I want done and YOU can stitch them all for me. :)

Love and hugs ~

My goodness Nancy! You will have to share your secrets of how you stitched this so fast. You are one turbo stitcher!
I love your first cross stitch piece. It's such a sweet design and don't hide it away - it deserves to be seen and admired.
Keep up the good work.

Great job Nancy!
Hope you have loads of fun in the warm sun of Florida - you deserve it after your long, cold Northern Winter.
Bon voyage - stay safe and come back soon!

Precious! You are one quick stitcher and I will tell you something my Mom-Mom (grandmother) once told me. "Mistakes are what make handmade things unique." She was a wonderful knitter and though she claims to have made mistakes all the time, I never could find one. But your first attempt at cross stitch looks just perfect to me. I, of course, am obsessive compulsive so I never make mistakes in my stitching! LOL And if you believe that one, I've some lovely swampland in Arizona just for you!! Enjoy Florida and I will miss your lovely blog terribly and that's the truth.
