Show and Tell Friday- Lioness Picture

I am skipping the swans this week, because I thought we were supposed to show something we made ourselves for show and tell this time.
This is one of my cross-stitch projects, back before I started wearing tri-focals! I stitched the mat out of plastic canvas because I wanted to to play with the shape. I love this Mama Lion's expression. This cub is wearing her out! I did this about 11 years ago and still love it. I went crazy for a couple of years there and did cross-stitch pictures for every member of my family, and I come from a large family. I have an unfinished one of a wolf that I would like to give to a friend of mine, if I could get my eyes to focus long enough.

I will be back with more swans next week!

Show and Tell

Lol! I know what you mean about the eyes getting tired! I've never done much cross - stitch, but am at the 'life-stage' where I think I'll need 6-count (what is it called?) size to do anything! cute pic.

I love it. I did a lions theme in my daughter's bedroom.

Wow! That is one beautiful cross stitch! I used to cross stitch and know how much work went into that!

Thanks for sharing.

if they still make them.......
I enjoyed your lions and also
your iris photos!
