These are step-by-step photos of a cross-stitch I recently had framed. It was actually a gift for Mom's birthday last year, but I was waiting for a good deal custom framing at Michaels. It's for her office, which is decorated in burgundy, gray, and blues, with Asian art. I'm also making her a second pattern, once I finish the project I'm currently working on.


This one was interesting in that it had a decorative frame printed onto the fabric.


Pretty colors.


Stitching tone-on-tone is really annoying, but it looks cool.




Something in my sweat melts sewing needles; I don't get it.




The pattern.


The real thing,


step


by


step.


The layers on this one were relatively simple.


It's like filling in a coloring book.


But with more counting.








Recognize this guy from the beginning?


Finished and freshly washed.


Detail of the finished project.


And the full image.

Alas, it's highly unlikely I'll be able to take pictures of it in position, since that's too RL for the 'webs.
