It's finally finished! (craft project)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok, so it's not actually done, I still have three books that dont have titles because I cant decide what to put on them, but I just finished the last of the little details today! I changed all the titles to my favorite books and my pets names (I wasnt into putting all that time into something to have the books read things like "Rat Hole" and "Fish Ponds" so I changed them to Tolstoy, Jane Eyre, Dickens etc.
It took me forever!! I ended up moving in the middle of it and it didnt get picked up again for months.



I always like looking at the back, it shows how much work went into it

It's beautiful! And I know how hard counted crossstitch is -- that's a major achievement! Great job!

That is beautiful! My mom used to do counted cross stitch and I know how much time goes into them. She only did one on black canvas though...she would get so cross eyed she would have to put a piece of white paper or a white sheet behind it so she could find the holes. Of course, she was in her 60's so I think you have a ways to go before you get to that point!

lol, I did have to put white paper behind it!! I didnt have a problem until I had to do the black on black, it was like using invisible thread and my eyes started to ache before too long. Thanks for the compliments everyone!

WOW! I consider myself a crafty person, but I dont have the patience for cross stitch of any kind. Very nice job, you did a wonderful job!

Great piece of work

I'm also a fan of cross-stitching, and when I get chance to I may post a picture of my latest design
