|Entally House - Tasmania|
This year, while between houses and staying in temporary accommodation, I needed something to do in the evenings, so out it came. Turns out, all I had to stitch was the tree!
One of my close friends and her husband are picture framers - so off it went, and this is how it came back...
I am absolutely thrilled - the framing is perfect. My husband is the photographer while I am holding the picture and he has caught his own reflection... but I really wanted to show off how good it looks framed. I'll have to scout around and try to find a better picture to replace this one with - but I was in a rush before gift wrapping it, and so it was quickly snapped, without thought.
The tale of Entally House cross-stitch, continued until I gave it to the neighbour mentioned above for her '0' birthday. She actually had nothing to say when I first gave it to her. My husband said she's pretty chuffed. A gift with personal meaning, stitched and given with love.
