I made this for my mate Em's Xmas present, from a pattern by Cross Stitch Heroes. I wasn't that impressed with the oval embroidery hoop, it's quite flimsy so only suitable for framing, not stitching. I painted it with acrylic paint I bought for a failed Halloween cardboard pumpkin that's now lost in the depths of my scary loft room. I should have ironed the charity shop Aida as there's still a faint fold (which may also be a line of dirt) but I have no room to use my iron. Overall though, I love this. It's a great pattern, the colours match her decor, and Em was really pleased with it.
