    Hi there,
    I too have been known to take a long time over a cross stitch. I spent years doing a huge celtic cross which now looks great on the living room wall but at the time spent too long on its frame.
    Good luck with the tiger's head - sounds intricate.
    Cheers,
    Mel

    Hi there. I LOVE cross stitching. My mother in law got me addicted. But I too take some time to finish my projects...especially if they're big ones.....I usually have two projects at the same time, a big project and a small one usually a cross stitch card and I try to switch them regularly so I won't get bored

    Hi. I started my first ever cross stitch in February, its got frogs on it which, if I ever finish it will look more like green hippos as I keep losing where Im up to. I find it difficult to see although I wear glasses and I have a magnifying glass. My 81 year old mother is always doing them-puts me to shame. Never mind, I'll let you all know if I ever complete it.

    I can't overestimate the usefulness of a good lamp - I got one for Christmas, nothing special except I can angle it where I want it in the evening and it really helps me see what I'm doing.

    I do cross stiching every now and then, I'm going to look for a pattern that uses beads, I think they give a lovely effect

    Yes, I have taken much time for certain cross-stitch projects. My nana had gotten me into cross-stitching before she passed, and after she did, I took over her last project. I finally finished it after 6 months, and now it hangs in the living room of my house. It really is beautiful. A little girl picking flowers.

    I'm currently working on one with three bears in a tub and around the border it says, "Bubbles Make Life More Bearable". It's pretty cute and I was thinking about giving it to my half-sister for her little ones to enjoy. I know she's into all that type of stuff.

    I'm 3/4 way through a massive lighthouse picture by Needle Treasures, it has a trellis border which I'm dreading - it was a present or I'm afraid it would have hit the UFO drawer

    My biggest picture so far was The Osmonds - it's in Chicago now with my friend Gina, she's a massive Osmond fan, I also did Donny on his own for one of Gina's friends, he only took a week!
