Cross Stitch - Anchors Aweigh

I made this picture several years ago for a friend, I had forgotten all about it until I visited her recently.

Cushion covers

I have learnt how to use my sewing machine and with the guidance of some online help from http://tinysidekick.com/how-to-make-a-zippered-pillow-cover/ I made my first cushion cover.  Feeling very proud.

After this success I made two more cushions for my sofa.
I think there could be more to come.

Cross Stitch - London Tube Map

I must be on a roll as I also finished the London Underground Map.   Now this is far too big to be framed so I am thinking of making into a cushion cover.    I hope that doesn't take me a few more years!

Cross Stitch - F1 Ferrari Racing Car

Finally finished the F1 Ferrari Racing Car that my niece Amber asked me to make.    It only took a couple of years!   Cross stitch on black canvas is not that easy but I am pleased with outcome.

I thought I would have a go at drawing, which is something I haven't done for about 40 years.  Here are some of my efforts so far.

Cross stitch - Handbags

I finally finished a piece of cross stitch.   I feel that this is quite an achievement and hopefully I will continue finishing some more work in 2014.
Just need to get it washed, ironed and framed.

Cross Stitch - Chinese Junk

I have just finished making this picture in cross stitch and have had it framed.   I did make it for a friend  but I am not sure if they are going to get it now as I think it will look lovely in my bedroom.
