Four Bears Cross Stitch

Four Bears

When I have the time, I like to embark on a cross stitch project and this was my biggest to date. I purchased the kit in Truro, Cornwall, several years ago and it took me over two years to complete. Normally, a project this size would have only taken a year but my daughter was born midway through. Below are a few snaps showing the development of this work.

Thai Dancer Cross Stitch

This was my first Thai cross stitch project, a Traditional dancer. I purchased the cross stitch pack in Pattaya Mall over seven years ago on my first holiday with my husband. Although I have never been very good at Thai Dancing (I have two left feet!), when I was a child, my mum used to dress me in a Traditional outfit and we would go to the Thai Temple in Wimbledon, London for special occasions throughout the year.
