This project, however, is one that caused me some guilt since it was actually meant to be a birthday present for some dear friends... a lovely couple we know, both of their birthdays are in January. That's right, 7 months ago. I misjudged how long this cross stitch would take, probably because it's the most detailed one I've completed since I started doing cross stitch. I haven't kept them in the dark all this time though, and they have had glimpses of the part finished project throughout.
The pattern was taken from Cross Stitch by Dorothy Wood and despite its intricacies was really lovely to stitch. I also think my mounting skills are getting better as this is certainly an improvement on previous ones. I'm not sure that I will take on another one so detailed immediately, and I think that I would like my next cross stitch project to be something for our house. I'm so glad that I did this one though, and I think that my friends will be really pleased with it.
