It's only taken me a year but here is the very first cross stitch I've ever completed, finally framed. There's a little bit of glare on the glass but you get the gist.
I haven't had it done professionally, I've just bought a frame and done it myself. I know it's not perfect but I do think the frame adds something.
I wrote all about the cross stitch in my Home Is Where The Heart Is post back in November last year. I think I'll hang it in the porch so that everyone can see it as they come through the door.
