have been cross stitching for about 9 years now and all my pieces are hanging on the walls of my home. have about 15 more projects to work on and if you check the ornamental hand-sewing topic, you'll see that i have one big project that has taken 2 years so far--which is what's good about doing this as a hobby. i work on smaller projects between my rest periods on the big one to give me some gratification at finishing something!

the big piece i'm doing is Teresa Wentzler's "English Garden Sampler" which will be about 21 3/4" x 15 1/2" unframed. it's stitched on 25-count fabric so you know the details are intricate. it has several stitching styles and some hardanger (which scares me a little). but it will be so worth it once it's framed and hanging in my bedroom. i'll see if i can find a website where you can look at the finished project.

I have many pieces I have crosss stiched but they are all mildewing. When I move to the mainland I will resume hand sewing and knitting. I can hardly wait!
