As any cross stitcher, or indeed, crafter, will tell you, we rarely complete projects for ourselves.
Whether it’s quilting or card making, cross stitching or knitting, our projects usually find their forever homes in those of others.
So when you finally do make something for yourself, it can be an alien sensation.
Mr XStitch very kindly offered to have one of my first and favourite cross stitches framed for my birthday, to be displayed in our house.
It’s our Bengal Bundle of Fluff.
I don’t think I’ll be hanging up my gift-giving hat any time in the near future, but I’m so pleased that I’ve finally got one of my pieces professionally framed and finished, especially when it means as much to me as it does.
Tell me…what projects have you finished for yourself?
