I have been working on a cross-stitch picture as well lately. It is around 3 years since I started, yet it became a UFO (unfinished object,) for several reasons. however, I decided that it was about time I finished it up. Today I finished putting all the cross-stitches in it, there is only the back stitching to do, which should be done by the end of the week. The picture shows progress as to last evening.

I have now finished Oliver's jumper, it is a little longer than the pattern states, as Oliver is quite tall, so needs the extra length.
I have also made a hat from Itty Bitty Hats for a colleague at work who is expecting a baby very soon.
There is also a photo of my current WIP. It's design 83 from UKHKA. The picture on the pattern looks like a bramble stitch, but is actually a woven stitch, using C4F and C4B one after the other on right side rows, the wrong side rows being purl. It is creating quite a firm fabric.
