A now for something different ...

... I used to do a lot of cross stitching, but had to give up because my back suffered too much from sitting in one position concentrating on it. This is the last item that I cross stitched, done a while ago, but never blogged.

Unfortunately, impossible to get a photo without a bit of reflection on the glass - and I don't want the bother of taking it out of the frame.

This is for:

  1. another fab project
    thanks for playing with us at fussy and fancy this week

  2. It is such a sweet piece, Hazel--too bad that you can't cross-stitch anymore! :^) Thanks for sharing with us at Lady Anne's! :^)
    Hugs, Penny

  3. This is so tender, Hazel! Very well done!

    I used to CC, too, and miss it ... but by the time I feel the urge to get back to it, I probably won't be able to do it physically either. Dang shame.

  4. (I used to cross-stitch, too, but it takes so long and then there's all the faff and expense of framing... I like paper best!)

    Your stitching is so neat and clean! I love Faye Whittaker's sweet, nostalgic designs. Fab work, hun!!

    love Mags B x

  5. I love cross stitch Hazel and what a terrific piece you have created. The vintage boy and girl are perfect together and I think your picture turned out very well. Thanks for joining us at Make It Monday.

  6. Hazel this is beautifully done. I use to do this too and needlepoint. Thank you for playing along at Lady Anne's.

  7. I saw your photo on MIM how darling. I love counted x stitch. Gerat work. Love it and nice change from paper crafting.

  8. Glad you shared this - it's lovely work! I used to cross stitch too but found cardmaking a lot quicker! :) I'm so happy you joined me this week at my Amusing Challenges! I hope you will visit again! :)

  9. Visiting from DLART Thankful Thurs Linky Party. Wonderful handmade creation. I have one made that was given to me of a Hummel scene of a little girl looking over a fence at Swans. I have it hanging in my bedroom.

  10. Wow! That's amazing! I wish I had a talent (or even skill) to cross stitch! That's fab!

    Thank you for sharing this with us at Pinspirational Challenges

  11. That's so beautiful. Reminds me that I have a cross-stitch project that has never been finished. Thanks for playing along with us at {Pin}spirational Challenge.

  12. Adorable! This takes me back to the years (many of them) when counted crosstitch was my hobby of choice.

    Thank you for participating in this week's {PIN}Spirational Challenge.

  13. Just beautiful! Used to love to cross stitch but couldn't do it now....this is just so very precious (-:
