Cross Stich Crazy

I go through all sorts of creative phases; at one time it was cross stitch. Here are a few things I made:
I loved this project; I like zebras. It hangs on my bedroom wall.
I made this for my mother's 90th birthday. It was her philosophy of life. When she died, it was returned to me. It also hangs on my bedroom wall.
This knot garden embroidery is only about 18cm square, but has dozens of colours as well as gold thread. This one is in my sitting room.
This means "A Hundred Thousand Welcomes" and is in Irish. We lived in Ireland for six years. It hangs in my dining room, and was a talking point among my guests when I ran a B&B.
Finally, not something I did, but a surprise in my flower garden: something that came up from the compost, a golden tomato plant. If you haven't tried these, do grow them,  they have a lovely flavour.

  1. love the photos of your cross stitch pictures. I also love to cross stitch but mine are much simpler - cos I like things that get finished - QUICK ! :o)
    I have never heard of a golden tomato- wow- what a treasure. Where can I get seeds for these? Are they sweeter than normal tomatoes?
