I have been working on my exchange gift for the last two days and the stitching is almost finished. I am still not sure what to turn it into and it has to be sent tomorrow (yikes!) I am thinking I might put it on to a canvas or even just frame it.
It's an art nouveau exchange and I got the various patterns from a book and put them together. I think the book is called 101 Cross Stitch Designs. It has four pages on art nouveau so I just picked a few elements and went with that. The exchange is run on the forum of www.cross-stitching.com so head over there if you want to take part in any exchanges. The exchanges are excellent and they are really well organised.
Anyway I hope you guys like it and I hope the recipient likes it as well!
Here is the piece when it was first started.
Its almost finished now, as you may be able to tell. I just have to add leaves to the stems and do another row or roses to the bottom.
See you guys soon, and have a very stitchy day! :)
