Well, I finished it!
As you can see, it's a little silver snow globe - with a couple of mountains, a little cottage, some fir trees and (of course) some snow.
This is the first cross stitch picture I've designed - before this I'd only made a sampler or two, and some mini sampler brooches. I'm quite pleased with the finished result and, apart from the fiddly silver sections and all that unpicking I had to do when I changed my mind about some of the colours I was using (sigh), this was a super relaxing project to work on in the evenings this winter.
I think there is definitely going to be more cross stitch in my future!
I'm hoping to get the pattern written up neatly so I can share it with you guys sometime soon... if anyone is interested?
