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.

Christmas Holly update
For the past few evenings I've been trying to finish up Christmas Holly. I've completed the holly and now I'm working on the borders. I've never used metallic thread and now I can see why...it's not that easy to use! I think it will be very elegant once it's finished, but it's going to be a tough stitch.
Here's the front.
Here's the back.
Here's a photo with the metallic thread. You can see I've started it up in the corner.
