Cross Stitch and Needlework Finishes

 I have started a new page for my 2016 (and later) finishes: here

This page is in progress.  I have stitched many projects over the years, but neglected to photograph them.  I'm still looking for my first embroidered pillowcases, my early 90's holiday projects (2 needlepoint stockings & large hooked Poinsettia rug), and my pre-90's projects (buried in storage).

My saddest cross stitch experience.  This kit was a gift from my Mom, which took me a long time to stitch.

I finished stitching it while traveling.  I washed the piece with mild detergent & left it out to dry overnight, as I was planning on visiting my Mom and wanted to show her the clean finished piece.

The vacation was unexpectedly cut short & I had to return home before visiting my Mom.  I did not think to remove the piece from the plastic kit bag when I unpacked my luggage.  There must have been some dampness left in it when I packed it up to go.

When I finally unpacked it to frame (weeks later), it was growing a mold colony.  Waahh!  I tried everything I could think of to remove the stains, but so far nothing has worked.  So sad.  I kept the chart, so I may restitch this in the future.
