Minerva Cross Stitch

by Annette Ormerod

April
18

Minerva (the name of our shop) is the Roman Goddess of Handicrafts and the Arts - hence the name!

To make this I chose a photograph 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.

We all love it and it hand proudly on show on the wall in the Minerva Craft Centre :)
