This is a map of Northumberland. The pattern comes from Heritage Stitchcraft: DMC threads, 28hpi ivory evenweave, black and white chart. I love doing these maps and you'll see a few that I've done, once I get round to posting them. I stitched this one for my Mother and Father-in-law, Linda and John, for their Silver Wedding Anniversary in July 2007.
This picture of Tinkerbell came from a 2009 issue of Cross Stitcher magazine. I stitched it for my (kind of) sister-in-law, Jane's, 21st Birthday
This wedding sampler comes from designer Michael Powell. I stitcher it for Linda's cousin's wedding in 2009. I wasn' intending to use any mount, but the red card proved useful in covering a slight grubby mark where I had had the fabric on a roller frame....
I think it has added to the design, rather than looking like I'm hiding something. Neverthless, anyone who reads the blog now know the secret!
This is another Heritage Map, this time of the Isles of Scilly. I stitched this one for my God Mother, Aunty Chris, as it's a favourite holiday destination. I finished this design in Summer 2008.
This simple yet effective design came from Cross Stitch Crazy sometime in early 2009. I stitched for Linda's cousin's daughter when she was christened.
