::Cross Stitch::

I started cross stitching my second year in college. Eight years and many abandoned projects later, here are what I've actually managed to complete.

Here's the very first cross stitch I ever completed. Words cannot describe my joy and disbelief as I made the last stitch...I never in all honesty thought I'd ever actually finish one of these things! It probably helped that it's only 2.5" in diameter. Why didn't I start out with something this size back when I first took up this craft??

After Eeyore, I got to feeling really ambitious. I made this as a Christmas present for Gayle, Ryan's fabulous mother. I must say, I am extremely pleased with how it turned out, especially after I matted and framed it. 

Here's a closer look at it.

And an even closer look.
