I feel like giving myself a huge pat-on-the back today! I finally finished this cross-stitch project for my mom! I started it four or five years ago (I can't even remember now) to give to her as a birthday gift, and whaddya know, it's finally done (too bad her birthday was in June).
I chose this design because my mom loves lighthouses and she also loves the serenity poem. I remember we had it in a cross-stitch hanging on the wall in our house when I was growing up.
I enjoyed doing the counted cross-stitch, but I think I would prefer the freedom of embroidery, and that's my next craft to tackle!
Here's some detail of the stitching.
