I am undertaking a foolish cross stitch project! I’m sure I’ve bitten off way more than I can chew. It will take me YEARS. But it’s so pretty!

To show you the scale, that pic is A4. See it below on the cloth - which is the full size plus a 4 inch border. Oh! And all the background gets stitched too.

That is probably about half the embroidery thread I’ll need. It was expensive and the shop ran out of some colours so I’ll have to go back for more (in probably about 3 years when I’ve used these ones up).

I’ll try to remember to take a progress pic on the first of each month :)
