Wolf Spirit

Remember a couple of months ago, I got this kit from Michelle?

I started working on it around August 12 and it was framed by October 2.  Wish I'd noticed the discolouration in the frame before I got it home!

    Beautiful, JoJo! Is that counted cross-stitch? I used to do those years ago and found it so relaxing.

  2. Yes, it's counted cross stitch. I started doing them 10 or 11 years ago and I'm addicted. I have run out of wall space though so I can only salivate over the wonderful kits that are available! I especially love ones that have a mixtures of beads & thread, with charms and/or buttons.

  3. I used to love to do counted cross stitch. And, wouldn't you know it, all that I did, I gave as gifts and never kept any for myself. Unfortunately, my eyes aren't what they used to be. Plus with working full-time and raising another little one, I just don't have the time. Oh, well...

    Could you send me some of your patience love, it's something I sadly lack!

  5. It's MUCH better than the illustration.

    Couldn't you get a little bottle of stain to touch up the frame?

  6. I agree with Di.
    I could never do something so intricate and beautiful! I have no patience with anything involving needles.
    Jojo, its absolutely stunning!

  7. I did something like this once when I was in college and I can honestly say, you are very patient. lol It looks great! Maybe as Val said, you could find something to touch the frame up. That wolf is absolutely beautiful!

  8. How lovely it is! Wow. You're such a talent!

    I used to work in a frame store and they have special crayons to do touch-ups on them. Go and check it out.
