While we are on the subject of cross stitch thought you'd like to see this one that I did for my grandson a couple of years ago. To be honest those browns did my head in as they were so similar so I changed the cream bootee's for blue. I was dreading doing the back stitch but it was suprisingly easy to do and wow what a difference it made to the picture. Would I do another one....at the time I said never again but that was before the final stitch was put in......so I changed my mind to yes, as the picture is so lovely (but it took a while to do).
He is growing into a strapping lad so it's hard to imagine that yes, he was once this small!
