Water My Garden..

Good Morning Friends,
Finally,the cross stitch that I was working on is done!.It came out beautifully and I am definitely going to frame this.. Experts advised me NOT to give a timeline while working on cross stitch,especially when the design is big and has a lot of color change, as it doesn't make the work fun! This one progressed slowly, I took it out when I really wanted to work on it.Overall, a nice experience and a good outcome!!
I love cross stitch, love the way when designs come up from no where(of course we follow a chart, but still).how the design grows!I used to take pictures of how it progressed, but later stage, don't know what happened, I dropped the plan..wanted to.. but.. lazy lazy me!!

The original pattern has got verses from Bible, I wanted to cross stitch that too, but I got wrong when I cut the fabric and  no enough space to work that now :( I realised that when it was half way through. A bit sad about that, as with that verses, the pattern looks more classy and  most liked one from the whole book. Happy that I got to cross stitch the whole watering can though!!Its a beautiful design!!
