I thought I would show you the first two cross-stitched pictures I made. The first one was a kit my mom bought. She was going to make it for me when I had my first baby. She never got around to doing it, so she decided to just give me the kit. I have had it in each of my kids nurseries and now it hangs above my daughters bed. I really like the way it looks, even after 13 years.
The next one I did about 2 years later. Unlike the one above which was pre-printed on the fabric, the second one was counted cross-stiching. I got the pattern out of a cross-stitching magazine. The thing I love about cross-stitching is that if you buy all the supplies yourself rather than get a kit, it is very inexpensive. I really like country styles so the next one is very country. I really love it. I have had it hanging in my eat-in kitchen since I've made it.
