I mounted a cross stitch piece that was given to me in the Round Robin hosted by June and stitched for me by Gracie.
This design is a freebie, but I can't find the link for it. I painted 22 Ct canvas with gold gilt creme then stitched the design in DMC floss in a basket weave stitch. It's finished with hand made cording, a tassel, irradescent black beads topped with Swarovski gold pearls. The backing is a beautiful black fabric with gold dots. I finished it to be hung as an ornament or placed on a stand. It reminds me of my daughter and grandson.
Here's an ornament from Little House Needlework's "Proverbs" series. The back is pink moire.
Janet Granger called "Cluny Women", as mentioned in my previous post.
I also finished two other pieces, but they are gifts and in the mail to a stitching sister. I'll post those photos when I know she has received them.
WHEW! "April - Here I come!"
