I'm happy about the way this cross-stitch work turned out. However I always have the feeling that it could be better.

I made a lot of mistakes in the background and I hate when that happens! But finally it's done! :faint:

Hope you like it too! :D

* Time of work: 6 months
* 40 colors used
* Pattern from: Cross-stitch magazine "Quadros 34"

WOW!!!!! I am so blown away, especially with the back view. I have been doing counted cross stitch since the '70's, and I am surprised when any of my backs come out have as pretty as yours. I doff my hat to you.

It's a spanish magazine and it's so hard to find. I open a cross sticth store in facebook and I put this pattern there if you want. I put all other patterns from that magazines. Take a look - [link]

I'm at this time doing the first one, with the fairy with the pink tulips.

Cripes, this is amazing, I've never completed something so complicated. 6 months is now time at all.

My winnie the pooh cross-stitch took me about 3 years to stitch, because I kept putting it down.

" the fishwoman" was harder to sticth cause I had to keep changing colour often. For me when I start something is like a addict I just have to finish, however in the end I always think that the work could be better. :aww:

I'm so glad you like it! :aww: I'm almost finish another big one too! [link] I haven't finish it earlier cause I've been preparing my wedding in the last months.

Only you know about any mistakes ;) The work is wonderful indeed. And you know, I think that even though we make some mistakes in our works it doesn't mean our pictures are bad but on the contrary they are unique. :)

Muito obrigado. Sabes, eles não são dificeis. A tecnica no fundo é sempre a mesma. A questão é que tens de ter paciencia pois é muito tempo numa só peça. Quando te decidires a fazer tens de fazer algo que gostes mesmo que é para valer apenas todo o esforço.

Ah e aproveita e junta-te a este clube de ponto cruz: *stitchingpirates - [link] Tem muitos trabalhos fixes. Acabamos neste momento de fazer um concurso mas em breve estamos a pensar em planear outro e poderás participar se quiseres. :aww:

It's framed but for now it's under my bed. I still don't have many furniture at home so I haven't decided where to place it yet. I was thinking maybe next to the fireplace.
