I can hardly believe that I'm saying this but the first of Mum's cross stitch UFOs is done already. Now I know she had already done most of the hard work but compared to the time it took to complete the kitty Cross stitch this one seems to have come together in a flash.
Of course I find myself wondering why she never finished even though she was so close to the end. I know that she found stitching on dark backgrounds more difficult even with her glasses, and I also figure that given the amount of unfinished she was easily distracted by a new challenge, lol. I'll guess I'll never know the reason but it's fun to speculate.
I really like how it turned out. I think Mum's decision to use beads instead of french knots for the stars has really added something extra to it, and the cross stitch and beading combo made it more interesting for me to stitch too.
Sometime in the next couple of weeks I will look for a nice frame for it.
And of course now I have to pick another UFO from the pile. Hmmm so many to choose from decisions, decisions.
