Friendship Grows-Counted Cross Stsitch

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I found the pattern and surprised her with the finished, framed piece. I signed it "L'il Sis" because neither of us had a sister, and I am just enough younger to qualify as a li'l sis....☺ What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just find a friend like mine first, the rest will come easy. This came as a "Sunset" counted cross stitch kit, designed by Martha Edwards, and measures 12"X 9". Fabric size is 16"X13"

What you will need

  • cotton thread
  • 18 count Ivory Aida cloth and needle

This picture doesn't begin to do justice to the beauty of Helen's work. She added small crystal beads, that pick up the thread colors, among the petals of the flowers. It is so beautiful on a tall easel in my living room. Thank you, Lil' Sis. Big Sis, Virginia
