Family Portrait

by Annette Ormerod

April

This design is of my parents. It means so much to me to have stitched a picture of them and have it hanging on my wall at home which I see everyday.

To make this I chose a nice picture of them both and sent it off to be made into a cross stitch chart. Stitch a Photos are very good for this (by DMC). I chose it to be done in sepia tones as I love this vintage-effect and I think it has come out really well.

The chart came back within a couple of weeks with a list of all the DMC colours I needed, plus the size of aida.

It took me about 6 months to complete as i did a few other projects inbetween!
