Before scrapping and before card making I used to do a lot of cross stitching and this is something that I started over 5 years ago. I am not into mythical creatures or anthing like that I simply chose this pattern because it was complex, large and challenging and I knew it would be a huge project to see me through a few years (I'd done a large project previously that had taken 4 years and was a bell hanging based on 5 tiles from the Victoria and Albert museum and was all in shades of blues and greens!)
As you can see there is so little left to do, just a bit of the cliffs in the background and some backstitching (outlining) so I really should just bite the bullet and get on with it!! I don't know what I will do with it when its complete lol.
Another cross stitch project I have on the go is one of Jessica's face when she was a baby. I bought a software package that turns a photo into a pattern, I will photo that soon and show you as its really interesting to see what it looks like stitched.
Back to scrapping, I decided to take a break from scrapping as everything was turning samey samey, I told myself I wouldn't sit down and create until I had thought of something that was original or different to do. I had that thought in bed last night whilst trying to sleep and so I have been scrapping today (Yay!) Its not finished yet though so I can't show you.
Hope you're all happy and busy creating!!
