I'm pretty proud of this one! I finished it in time and even managed to frame it myself (although I'm pretty sure my technique needs improving!).
So as mentioned in previous posts, I have been working on a cross-stitch of the anatomy of a heart for my friend who has just completed her nursing degree (it's her second degree and she has worked her socks off for it!).
Luckily she finished a couple of weeks ago, meaning I could dedicate some of my summer holiday to working on it.
I love the labeling (almost didn't do it but so glad I did), and I wrote her name in glittery red thread - one day I will learn to stop doing any form of cross-stitch in glittery stuff! I've gotten better at it, but it is not as smooth as normal thread.
My framing technique needs improving - cardboard, industrial tape and some staples were involved (eek) but it worked quite nicely. Just kicking myself that I forgot to iron it first!
It went down really well, and Becca is really chuffed with it! I think I definitely managed an original gift.
