#CherryBlossom #crossstitch

Just wanted to share. This is the cross stitch that I entered in the needlework show at the library (she’s about 14×16 on 18 count Aida fabric):

Here are some close-ups of the cool details, including cording and backstitching with complementary colors as well as gold thread in some places:

Her belt is also corded, and I had to learn how to do lazy daisies for her hair:

This is how she looks displayed on my wall with two smaller companion pieces I made to go with her:

Happy stitching!
