What has been your favorite project to stitch? (either finished or in progress).
My absolute, all time favourite project has to be Lavender & Lace Nantucket Rose. I started stitching in my teens, I started with a couple of small projects (which took me ages to do). Every year I go (still do) to a vintage car rally with my father and one year there was a woman selling some beautiful cross stitch kits, the Lavender & Lace ones. She had Nantucket Rose all stitched up and framed and at the time it took me an age to decide whether or not I would actually get this one as it was much bigger than anything I had worked on before. In the end I decided to go for it and my father gave me some money towards paying for it.
I spent nearly all of my summer holidays from school that year working on this project. It took longer than that to do, all in all I think I spent about 9 months on it. Finally I finished it and my mother had it professionally framed. It now hangs on the wall in the living room of my mother's house. I love to just look at it when I head out home as I still think it is so beautiful and I just love her hair and face.
