I've been continuing with my cross stitch since I last wrote about it. Some of it has made me very cross, and I even gave up on one project, because the pattern was too tiny, the threads kept tangling and I didn't like the colours I was working with. I reasoned that I was doing the cross stitch for fun, and if I wasn't enjoying it, then I should stop. So it was back to more Forever Friends patterns as these seem to be my favourite - appealing colours, adorable bears, and absolutely relaxing. I think my favourite is the one with the roses at the bottom - they took a lot of backstitching but I loved the result.
I must now iron them, but I'm not sure what to do with them. My fiance offered to frame them, but I think that was before he realised how big the output would be. They're too big to use for greetings cards.
