Cross Stitch Conversion

After years of designing my own range of Cross Stitch Charts I have now ventured into Cross Stitch Conversions for other people. Funny how you never consider some options then within the course of a couple of weeks you can have 3 or 4 people ask you if you do conversions. My inital reaction was to say no then I reconsidered. Which now brings me to my first commission.




And here's bit of a preview of the finished bird. The original has a lovely watercolour effect to it. I hope I've captured it. I've actually done 2 charts. One with a stitched background, the other is just the bird with no background.




I've also finally finished un-braiding the 'Japanese Braid'.





After I finished that I needed to rewind all the bobbins. Of course by then I was over it for the day. I'll start braiding afresh tomorrow.

That bird will look great when it's stitched. Do you get to see the finished project when you design for others?
