Completed Cross Stich - Jamie Leigh's "Kitchen Patchwork"



Frame view and close up view for you
 
This picture does not do this completed pattern justice. I worked this over a very high count fabric. I think I made the mistake of using 2 threads instead of one which caused me to pull and tug at the fabric a lot. However, the colours came out strong and the framer did a great job too. 
If you ever have a chance to try a symmetrical piece similar to this one, it is very refreshing to see the detail in the design come through the finished product.
I completed this over a weekend.
