Sophie's Roses

I am proud to say I have finally had a cross stitch finish. I have only been doing this cross stitch for 10 years. Fast aren't I? I bought the stitchery as a kit. It came with the 32 ct linen and silk threads.
You may wonder why it doesn't look quite like the picture. Well I lost the pattern while on holidays years ago and couldnt' retrieve it just as I had begun stitching the outer border. I decided that I did not need the outer border but also I didn't like the inner border of black checkerboard. So I have left both borders out. I like it the way it is and too late now as it is booked in to get framed. I can't wait to hang it in Miss M's bedroom.

You just cannot go wrong with Shepard's Bush.

Oh lovely! I prefer yur version to the original, too many borders in my opinion. The inner border is so dainty, the eye can focus on it. Congratulations!
