Way back in January, I showed Kathleen an article from Martha Stewart Living on making cross-stitch family portraits. She casually (jokingly?) mentioned that was what she wanted for her birthday, and I was determined to make it for her. Even though her birthday was back in May, I finally got it done and sent to her. Better late than never. Right?
I LOVED doing this project. It was easy (especially with the patterns) and very satisfactory work. I can't wait to make our family cross-stitch portrait!
As you can see, my stitches are far from perfect but I think that is the charm of something homemade!
