I was just thinking,
This could also be printed by hand or computer in a lovely Font and framed with a locket of ones child's strands of hair.

I think there is a software for printing out cross-stitch patterns. I'm looking for it on line. There are several of the cross-stitched poems on Etsy for sale for $7-15.

Here are a few more cross-stitch examples - 2 of my mother's and Halloween one I bought for $3.




This poem is so cute:
HalloweenBrew
Mix a drop of apple cider
with the web of a spider
add a witch's scowl
and a werewolf's howl
drop in a black cat's fright
on a moonlit night
and last but not least
for our holiday feast
remember that ghosts
make great Halloween hosts!!

I love to cross stitch too but can not do right now because of my eyes. Cataract Surgery Oct. 22 and Nov. 5th. I will not chicken out again.
Anyway in the ‘’80’s and my younger years I cross stitched Bavaria’s Nueschwanstein Castle In Germany. The castle Walt Disney model Cinderella’s Castle after.
I cross stitched it on Navy Blue 10 count fabric. It took me a couple of years and at times I stitched with a light behind the fabric so I could see the little squares on the fabric. When I finished it I took a framing and mat class so I could frame it myself, and I did.
It has been 39 years since I did the piece, and it has always hung in the living room of every house we have owned and it will my next home as well.
It is my most cherished piece, I have never done another project like it and not likely will again. I do smaller pieces when I can.

Big Hugs,
Debbie

Debbie - I was not able to cross stitch for several years because of undiagnosed cataracts. Once I had the surgery and my eyes adjusted, I was over joyed to find that I could do it again. Be patient with your body.

I loved seeing Neuschwanstein castle when I was in Germany in 2008 (or 2009). Ed and I may see it again this December when we are in Germany. I bet your cross-stitched picture was beautiful.

Yes, it is I believe I still have the pattern. Yes, now we are trying to remember where it is as we have already started pack and sorting for our move in March next year. As soon as I put my hands on it I will send as picture. We went to the Castle when we were stationed in Germany in the 80’s.

Oh what beautiful work you all are showing. I love to cross stitch too but like you, Grace, had to go to 11 count. I still have a lot of the 14 and 18 count but now make bigger stitches on them as I didn't want to not use them. It's just so relaxing and enjoyable to do. I just wish I could see better. I also use a very bright light and a magnifier. The work goes slower now but I just am not ready to give it up completely yet.

I'm more of an embroiderer, although I did cross stitch starting out, I like the more fluid lines of hand embroidery! These are my latest creations--because I'm a fantasy nerd
