We were on holiday on Dorset and sound a lovely Cross Stitch shop where they had this picture completed and on show. I bought the chart and started it in 1993 as my friend, Sarah, had just announced she was pregnant. In those days I didn't stitch as much as I do now and this was the biggest project I had taken on. So in October of that year when I found I was pregnant also I decided to keep the stitching for myself........ (sorry Sarah!). But when my twins arrived in 1994 my stitching got put in a cupboard and didn't make a re appearance for quite a while..... I finally finished it about 5 years ago and it now hangs pride of place in my lounge.
Today I have worked on a few cards and now I'm going to work on The Family Tree and have a nice glass of red wine (being careful not to get the wine too near the stitching!) Tomorrow I am going to take another picture of this stitching to update on my blog.
