I was sorting through some stuff today and came across this tapestry. It was my first attempt at needlework and was a HUGE undertaking for a beginner project. It took the guts of a year on and off and by the time I finished, I was sick of the sight of it! I must get it framed and onto the wall, as its so vibrant. It doesn't look that way in the photo, but we don't seem to be getting any natural light these days. So hard to get decent photos of anything.
The kit was bought from Emily Peacock and she has some fantastic designs available. I have always wanted to make the Hug and Kiss pillows. I think they were featured on that Kirstie Allsop crafting programme.
I love this new design as well.
And this older one too!

Pattern from Wee Little Stitches.
Well it's finished. I think I might have jinxed myself by posting about it before it was completed. After stitching the next three letters, I realised I had used a kind of ecru colour instead of white. My mum insisted she couldn't notice it and I believed her for a while. Once I finished it, I knew it would annoy me for ever more, so I redid those few letters. Thankfully that was the last of the disasters with this one. Onwards and upwards! Ethan decided that his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cross stitch wasn't big enough, so he has chosen the X-Men instead (all 12 of them....sigh)
