The question for WIPocalypse this month was to tell the story of one of our pieces. I’ll try to keep this short. I had never done cross stitch until I decided in 2011 to buy a mandala by Chatelaine. I was moving along quite nicely until I fell and had hip trouble – couldn’t get up and down stairs easily.So it got put away for two years.
I read about WIPocalypse and decided to join with the hope of getting this beautiful piece completed. In 2014 I started on the mosques and buildings around the outside and slowly got it all done this year. Thank you to all of you who encouraged me along the way!
And here it is all framed up – 30″ square!! (It’s masterpiece glass so it’s almost impossible to get a good photo without a little flash in it.)
