Remember that new year’s resolution? To learn how to cross-stitch?

And there is my first project! “M” is for the Magnificent Maxwells. I cross stitched it on a hoop.

And then cut out around the “M” and mounted it on a piece of burlap that I still have laying around from our wedding, using double stick tape.

And now the “M” lives in a frame on our new bookshelf next to our wedding photo-book.

And now we have a beautiful hand-embroidered “M” to pass onto our children.

Next I think I want to cross stitch directly onto burlap; it seems like it would be good for that. We have endless amounts of sage green burlap.
