X is for'

X - Stitch
as there are no stitches that begin with the letter X,  I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to display this little miniature cross stitch that I worked while doing a lot of miniature embroideries.
Worked on 28 count Brittney even weave fabric (14 stitches per inch)
As you have probably read before its not my favourite form of embroidery, 
I can't seem to get my head around how it's worked and I'm not good at following the patterns :/
I really did wing my way through this one.

Still its nice that I get to use it on one of my tags :)
Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my little 'spider' on my Web tag last week.
I'm not a huge fan of spiders myself, but he was fun to stitch :)

  9. For somebody who doesn't like Xstitch, you did an amazing job on that little sampler. It is gorgeous! I do love Xstitch, I used to design commemorative samplers.
