We interrupt this blog to bring you this special post

My sweetie has been asking me if I’ve shown everyone his work, so today I present his completed works for all to see.

This is his first large cross stitch project:
Lady

We sent in a picture of his first dog to a company who created the chart for him to use. I had his piece framed with the picture and the framer wrote his dog’s name in calligraphy.

The next piece we have framed is entitled “The Wave” which everyone thinks is a painting.

His most recent finish is entitled “Artic Antics”

His work makes me jealous; there a few pieces that I’ve started that I’ve never finished. I wish I had his determination.

Very impressive!

I love the one of his dog--what a great way to remember a pet. I'll have to keep that in mind.

So can I send him a couple of pieces to finish for me ;)

He does amazing work. Those are beautiful and they do look more like paintings. Is it counted cross stitch?

Very cool! Did you know there's cross stitch computer software? I used PCStitch to make a couple of charts from pictures. It works pretty well.

Absolutely beautiful work! Are they done on linen?

DH & I have done counted cross stitch. They work is so amazing when it's complete.
