I love this piece. Unless you know what you are looking at, it takes a minute to figure out that it's a mother and baby giraffe. It's based on the original artwork of Charley Harper. He was an incredible artist and I love all of his work. I've located more cross stitch patterns using his work that I hope to do in the future.
Anyway, when I got home and told the family that I could only pick one piece to enter at the Fair, they all like the lighthouses better.
So, the next day I had to call back and change my selection (since I was out-voted). This was a chart from a British magazine called Cross Stitch Crazy. It was quite fun to sew and went very quickly.
You will notice that I don't have pictures of the backs of these pieces. I'll be showing quite a few of my finished pieces without a backside picture. When I thought about showing the back, most of my work had already been framed. For any current and future work, I will definitely show the front and the back.
