Cross Stich on Canvas

Despite his lack of focus, by eldest son, who is ten, is a creative wee soul - he often needs a bit of coaxing to do something, but when he does manage to actually finish a project, I think he nails it!
Take this cross stitch on a box canvas.....

He sat last Sunday afternoon when it was just the two of us in the house- in front of the stove.  He began by diligently charting his design on squared paper, punching holes into the canvas, painting the canvas yellow and then stitching the design with some black wool - I'm bias obviously, but I thinks its amazing!


  1. That looks amazing! You must be so proud of him, doing something so creative and so well.

  2. That is creative and well executed. What a clever chap.
