An old cross stitch project

Way back when, before I got into blogging or cardmaking, believe it or not I never used to take pics of my finished projects!

This is one I have finally got around to photographing!

It's a cross stitch of the English Rose flower fairy I stitched for my mum as a present when I got married, 6 years ago now, how time flies! I chose this one because I am very pale skinned and when I was little she always used to call me her little English Rose!

So now I finally have taken a pic of it, I thought I'd share. It was a kit I bought by DMC and was quite easy, if I remember rightly it took me a couple of months to complete. There's a lot of backstitch but it really does bring her to life!

thanks for stopping by :)

This looks amazing Gemma. I did binka cross stitch as a child but never got round to taking it further. You have captured the whole scene perfectly in the colours you have used.
Hope you are having a good Sunday.
