Hello mylotters.I have my masterpiece a cross stitch which I made in 12 years. I chosen this design Tiger because it was year 1998, year of the Tiger when I started doing this cross stitch. After giving birth to my first born son during my maternity leave. While my baby was falling asleep, I'm busy doing this stitching. Until I came back to my office for work, so I didn't got to finish it. And i never got a chance to work for my design during those years. Until my second and third baby came, that's the time again to sewed. But then again I didn't got to finish it. So after a long waiting of my masterpiece, I taught I wouldn't finish it all. So I kept it in my cabinet. huhuhu:( Then year 2007, while fixing and packing up our things because were moving out from other place, I then saw it again my masterpiece. So I brought it to my new house and continued to do the cross stitching, since my kids are grown up and I have more time to spent for stitching. So finally, I done my cross stitch year 2009. And it was only yesterday that my masterpiece was put into frame, at long last. That's why I'm so happy and proud to show to all my masterpiece, 12 years in making, hahaha :) How about you, did you ever got a chance to make a cross stitch? How long did you finish it?

I made her one when she was newborn and prefers granmama Marie's blanket over any other LOL so I am stuck knitting for the minute Anyway...here are a couple of sites for you to look at you might enjoy since you like cross stitching www.goldenkite.com This site has a lot of the historical paintings that they have obtained rights to turn them into cross stitch pieces but I am proud to own a few of their patterns via my friend getting them for me. But have not started one yet. also the other site is www.mysticstitch.com I am presently working on two pieces from that site and I will figure out how to put up pictures here so you can see my progress on one of them Anyway hope you enjoy the two sites as much as I do Marie

That is beautiful work godslove! And the fact that you finished it after all that time is remarkable! Good for you!! The longest one I worked on was 8 years but it was a really hard one and very detailed. At times I had to put it down and take time off from doing it because it was frustrating but I'd always go back to it and finally finished it. I call it the four seasons. Here's a picture of it if you'd like to see it.
