I love doing counted cross stitch, and have been doing it for years. However I had problem with my carpal tunnel and ended up having it operated on so haven't done cross stitch in a few years.
I thought I'd show you some of the things I have hung up around the house.
This is the first sampler I did back in 1988, just before we came to Canada. It hangs in our powder room.
I did a four seasons one. It was actually four separate kits that I had framed together. This hangs on the upstairs landing.
This is a sampler I did for dh's mother. When she passed on my sil gave it back to me. This is hung in the spare bedroom.
I made this one for my Nana, and when she passed on, I asked if I could have it. It hangs above our bed.
Finally I did a pair of houses, I think back in 1988.
This is the American House:
This is the Victorian House:
