My Counted-CrossStitch work:
These are some of 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 next picture is entitled: "Butterfly & Daisies",
Dimensions number 35249. Please ignore the faint black squares, they're a photographic artifact.
The picture is 11" by 11" (unstretched and unframed):
Given to my Sister-In-Law
The next picture is called "Bonsai and Buddha". This picture has a partially
shaded Aida cloth. Please ignore the faint black squares, they're a photographic
artifact. This picture was given to Aleta Coco. The calligraphy says:
|1. Bliss||7. Harmony|
|2. Well-being||8. Leisure|
|3. Serenity||9. Peace|
|4. Tranquility||10. Health|
|5. Spirituality||11. Happiness|
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):
The next picture is entitled: "Woodland Enchantress".
This picture was Donated to Allison Care Center in Lakewood Colorado in honor of my Aunt
Elizabeth (Betty) Crossman.
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:
The next picture is called "Holiday Village". Unfortunately, you cannot see all the sequins in the large Christmas tree or elsewhere (16" by 12" unstretched):
