This counted cross stitch picture was a moms day gift from my daughter this past year. Being blind I have a hard time doing cross stitch but wanted to do this and put it into a wooden ring to hang on the Christmas Tree this year. I am working on it, a few cross stitches a week, depending on the light. With snow outside I can see where I'm to put the needle a lot easier. Its a dark blue background. This could also be used for a bookmark.
