i'm half way through my cross stitch and brought myself an haed
this one getting the colours together,slowly ready to start in a coouple of months
this is the one ,it's 35 pages so is a huge project this is it ,
if you click on the pic it opens up a bigger one and the detail is lovely

i must admit slightly stressed with work lately so it's been relaxing to stitch in the evening and the more stressed the more i spend stitching this is my next project
but i've also found this one which i like ,oh says it's morbid ,i think it shows devotion

please vote ,you don't need to comment :grin:

It is sad, but I think like you Suz - it shows devotion. ;)

that's the problem gilly c
if it didn't go on a wall a year making it would really be wasted

Frankly I like the Lanseer better than the other one anyway and I'd certainly hang it on a wall. There's nothing morbid about it at all - I've got some wonderful photos of my sister's cats sitting on her coffin.

I like it. It's like Hachi or whatever that Japanese dog was called who waited for his master outside the train station back in the 1920's

Also there's that film where the dog keeps visiting his masters grave (have no clue what it's called)

Not morbid in my opinion
