A Baby Gift | Cross Stitch

For the better part of a year, I was working on a pretty big project - a baby gift for my friend, Becky.  I gave some sneaks here and there, but for the most part, it's been super-secret-on-the-down-low.

I gave the gift to Becky yesterday, so I'm now able to do a full reveal of the piece...

I actually had to lay it down on the dining room floor to get the whole thing in the shot.  

Some close ups....

Considering all that backstitching...it'll be a long time before I do this pattern for anyone.  It was brutal.  BUT - the payoff is that it looks amazing.  The detail is incredible.

As always, Lise at my LNS did a phenomenal job with the framing.  It's perfect.  Thank you, Lise!

In case you want to try your hand at this, the graph is ABC Tapestry from Rosewood Manor.  I stitched it on 40 count Purely Primitive from Silkweaver Fabrics.  .

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  Happy Stitching!
