I love oriental cross-stitches and on our last trip to Melbourne I found this book. I have lots of oriental cross-stitch kits at home and thought it would be nice to have more so that I can make my blank hallway walls an oriental gallery. Here is the kimono design I finished a few months ago. This is the first in a series of oriental designs I want to complete.
I have recently purchased a number of cross-stitch kits from eBay, well actually about 20 kits, which will make excellent birthday and Christmas gifts once completed. I think my next task will be a series of angels, which I will attempt to embellish with some beads and blending filaments.
But first, I have made a new resolution - "I will start new work, but will spend every second night on completing the outstanding work and unfinished projects" I am not sure how well this will go, but I will update the blog with my progress.
