Wow that's really a work of art. It must have taken you forever to do it. I used to do cross stitch years ago but sadly my eyesight is no longer up to it.
So much to craft, so little time

Wonderful project... in my younger days I did quite a few cross stitch pictures some of which are now with my daughter and family in Australia. I loved doing them and spent many happy hours stitching , your picture is lovely and I'm sure you will get many hours of pleasure from it in the years to come well done Mary x
all you need is love and chocolate
Thank you to everyone for the lovely comments I recieve on my Gallery Mary x

Your cross stitched picture is beautiful. I bet you are really happy with it. I used to do cross stitch,but never tackled anything this big. I'm not sure if my hands would be able to grip the needle now...And my eyes certainly wouldn't be up to it!. This was a great achievement..But I bet your happy now that it's finished!. Angela

A real work of art,beautiful.How long did it take for you to complete?I have done small pictures,and a birth picture for one of our grandsons,nothing as ambitious as this. These days just do small things to include in a card design,fingers do not hold needles for long these days. Adrienne

Re: My 216 colors cross stitch tapestry - finally completed
WOWWEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeee Its STUNNING Thats Some work of Art!!!!.. you Must have some Determination To Cross stitch Something as Big and Beautiful As That.... Its Wonderful!!!! Have you started a New one Yet?.... I No longer Attempt Cross stitch As I know My Hands/Fingers And eyesight Are Not up to it Now... I still Do My "Quaker Style Sewing" now and then Im Almost at the end of a Famous one Its called "The sheep" or something like that ? Its sheep (Obviously :roll: But also has sheep dogs in it...) Quaker Style Only uses 7 types of Stitches And True to Quaker ways They are Simple And Its Done with Crewel Wools .. I must "Dig" it out now and finish it off....... :roll: :roll: Its Very much Texture ... And They Portray History.....
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

Re: My 216 colors cross stitch tapestry - finally completed
That is absolutely amazing. My hands and eyesight would definitely not let me attempt something even 1/100 th of that size . You must have a lot of patience
