Counted Cross Stitch

My MIL made beautiful photo quality cross stitch pieces that she shared with her family. She passed away in June and when her daughters were going through her things they found a piece she had almost finished that was meant for my DH. They said that it just had a " little corner" left. I used to do cross stitch (haven't done any in about 10 years, though) so DH asked me if I would finish that little corner. Of course I said I would. Their idea of a little corner and my idea are quite different . It is a section that is roughly 5 inches by 10 inches. I checked the pattern guide and can easily see where to pick up from, so wish me luck!

What a sweet thing for your MIL to do and now for you to finish the project makes it even more special.

I hope you will post a picture.
Even a before and after would be fun to see.

I started a counted cross-stitch of the buildings on the main street of the historic, tourist town where I grew up.
I started it nearly 40 years ago.
You may just have inspired me to finish it even though my eyes are much older.
