A place to document my cross stitch projects. No one ever shows the back of their work, they only show the front - I'll show both. You won't hear much about my family or personal stuff in my life. This is about cross stitching and every once in awhile, some other craft project I happen to do.

A Son's Request...
My son has been watching me stitch since he was born, and recently he asked if I was working on anything for him. Here's what I ended up doing for him. I mounted this one myself in a white frame, it's about 3" x 5".
The other piece I did for him was one of his drawings. The original was done on legal-size paper and hangs in my office. I took the original and reduced it and then embroidered it on aida cloth using red floss. I did it freehand, I did not transfer the image onto the fabric. He tells me that it is a fire-breathing dragon and a man is standing in front of him with a torch.
And here it is framed. I have blocked his name on these pictures.
Hopefully when he grows up he will appreciate these (at least I hope his future wife does).
