My first attempt at Cross Stitching!

Well, I never thought I would see this day...........but, I have compleated my first cross stitch! yipeee! It's not perfect, but for a first go, I'm pretty pleased with it, and myself!! The black outline was tricky and the instructions didn't really tell me what to do, so its a bit messy unfortunately. It also didn't tell me what to do with the thread once you have finished, so I just doubled it under the loop of the last stitch....hope that's right?! hehe

So what do you think?


Luv Lou xx
