Look what I finished!
I've stitched projects that were a lot larger and had four times the colors, but that was years ago. I'm kind of proud of what I managed to do with a fifty-cent estate sale find. It's not my best work. What it is, is permission to get into those other cross-stitch kits I recently dug out of my sewing room or picked up dirt cheap at the thrift shop.
A couple of the large projects are calling to me, but I think I'll do another small one first. I'm still refining half-forgotten techniques and learning new tricks. And the little kit I've got in mind is really cute.
I did leave off a lot of back stitching and some French knots because I decided that the trees were find as-is and the rocks in the foreground didn't need flowers.
