I was all ready to show you the project I had finished. When I looked at the photo I took, I realized that I had left an "E" out of the word "Pampered"! Ugh... So, I'll put the new project aside, rip out those stitches, and fix this one before Mom does her thing to it (cutting the edges of the fabric and gluing it into the hoop and all. Bleh. Oh, well, glad I caught it before it was completely finished and put it in the shop. ;p

Aw...sounds cute. :) I left off cross stitching for quite some time, too, but am picking it up again.

I am envious of anyone that can do counted cross stitch. Personally, I do not have the patience for it. Fortunately for you it is not a mistake that would take a lot of time to fix.

do you use a pattern to make that kind of item. It's cute.

Thank you, @sharon6345 . Sometimes I use a ready-made pattern, Sometimes I make up my own pattern, and sometimes, as with this one, I start out with a ready-made pattern and wind up doing it the way I want it instead of how the pattern actually is. ;)

Well, @sharon6345 , this particular thing is put in a hoop (the one that's on it, now) when it's completely done and it's for hanging on the wall. I make things like this and bookmarks these days.
