Cross stitching for my Mum.

Back again with another cross stitch show and tell.
Mum chose this piece herself and asked me to stitch it for her. It was done on 11 count aida. LOL It felt like cheating the stitches were so big.
As soon as I saw this kit in the shop I knew I had to have it. All those cuddlies are so adorable.
There was so much clever shading that there was no need for back stitching. That really made my day! I think my sister Moya has this one now. I can't help wishing I had hung onto it.
These Fuchsias were another must, as soon as I saw the design in a magazine I knew I had to do this one for mum. I stitched all of the outline/frames first then enjoyed stitching the fuchsias one at a time.
She loves Fuchsias and used to have many different varieties. She has a smaller garden now, and had to leave many behind. This sampler is on her dining room wall though, I know she adores it.
All of the projects shown today are large pieces and were framed in 18 x 20 inch frames.
