I haven't been doing a lot of crafting just lately what with one thing and another. My dad has been in hospital again, this time with a kidney infection, so visiting has been taking time out of my day, along with other things just now. He came home on Thursday so all is well again for the time being. I have made a start on my cross stitch though and have managed to complete the bride and groom, well, apart from their eyes which are French knots so I'll sew them in at the end.
As you can see, there's still plenty more to stitch yet but I'm taking this slowly. I enjoy putting a few stitches in here and there.
The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that the colour of the bride's hair is different from the colour the chart calls for. This is because I'm hoping to have this finished in time for my niece's wedding in September, in which case I shall give her and her new husband it as a gift, so I wanted the bride to have the same colour hair as my niece. It's nice to be able to personalise it the way you want.
I'm really happy with the start I've made.
