After a couple of months of working on my cross stitched palm tree on aida cloth, I am finally finished with this project. Here are the last few steps that resulted in the the final product, which is ready to be framed.
Rather than cross stitch a signature on the aida cloth, I opted to stitch on my initials in the bottom left-hand corner. The initials were created with a lavender color of embroidery floss.
Next, I cross stitched in the blue sky around the lavender colored initials.
In this last photograph I have finished cross stitching in the palm tree on the aida cloth. Now I just need to find a frame so I can hang it on the wall.
This video illustrates what the cross stitched palm tree looked like when I finished it.
