Cross Stitch Family Portrait
I immediately thought, what a perfect Mother's day gift for my friend Melissa. I can honestly say, this was a pretty easy project even for a novice cross stitcher like myself. The link above provides a guide with templates you can easily customize to make your own family in cross stitch form. The possibilities are endless. This took me a few hours to complete and the hardest part was deciding colors for the outfits and stitching the letters. I was so excited to finish this project that I had to share it immediately with my friend so I could also share it on the blog. I plan to iron it and frame it before presenting it to her. The finished project will easily fit in a 5x7 picture frame. I encourage everyone to give it a try.
