    Hi Shanti!

    Those two sites are real good. How old is your daughter. Your post reminds me of my school days abt 12 yrs back when I was in high school and I too used to learn different stitches from my mom and granny during each vacation. It was in my 8th standard that I made myself some embroidery on my salwar kameez.

    cheers
    Pranuthi

    Hi chitra,
    I also love doing cross stitch, but for last some yrs i've not done it but will start a bedsheet, with all over work on it.
    I have made many photo frames on stiff matti and it has turned out very well.
    I've done it with wool.
    You also try it.
    bye,and do revert back.:wave

    re: Embroidery : Cross Stitch Patterns

    thank you so very much for that pattern Sunkan! :) It is really good...Do you also have a pattern for a train with engine and passanger compartments or just a pattern for passanger compartments? that way I can make a complete train :) :)
