My Counted-CrossStitch work:

These are the latest (hence unframed) counted-crosstitch pictures that I've completed. The content of the pictures was done by someone else, I just did the stitching.

The cross-stitch kits can be found at:
Dimension Designs

The next picture is called "Kitty Litter".  My son is autistic and he has a fixation on cats, so I made this picture for him.  (18" by 9" unstretched):

I really like how her cloak is semi-transparent at the ends.
I wish the beadwork & gilded stitching around the edges of her cloak was more obvious in the picture.
Dimension Designs does a wonderful job in designing their artwork:

The next picture is a Wizard defending himself from a Dragon.  A picture typically takes around 4 months to complete.  The picture is unframed:
