It's more like a look-a-like tapestry. I fell in love with it when I've decided to upholster the 3-seater sofa for my room. It fits in the Victorian look well.

My mum had this book for a long time. It's put to good use now. Yes, it was from the library and sometimes the library sells their really old books for cheap, so my mum got them. We didn't steal it!

I've been working on this for a few weeks now. I do it during the evenings when I feel up to it. It can be therapeutic, but you know, cross-stitch is not my thing. After this, I'm not going to start on any cross-stitch projects anymore. The book has nice big prints of the grid patterns, and I still make mistakes!

These are the 2 that are in progress. Mum's helping me on one of them. I'm sewing this one .

Mumzie's doing this.

It's too labour intensive. This is the progress after a month plus work (mind you, I only sew when I feel up to it in the evenings & nights). Still a long way to go...

Stay tuned for the finished work... note that it'll be a long while.

  1. I am impressed by the amount of effort put into the renovation of your house. I'm sure it's a great sense of achievement at the end of the day. I know I'll never do it like you do. I'd rather pay to get it done. But well, pros and cons to everything. I guess if you do it yourself, you don't end up with shit. Paying others to do it, you can't even say for sure they'll not do a shitty work. Lots of work man... Real tough for a lazy girl like me. ^^ I'm so proud of you!!!
