Giraffe mother and baby update

*smile* I'm impressed with myself! I've made serious progress on the giraffe in last week's rotation. That's what can be done if I have enough time for my hobby! Obviously, being at home and with nothing else to do, I devoted several hours a day to cross stitch. The picture on the right shows how it looked last Monday.

I have to say that the fabric is lovely to stitch on and I would like to declare it my favourite fabric at this stage. And it is Aida - I've never thought I'd say that, Aida my favourite fabric. It is 18ct, and it's lovely to stitch on, and the appearance is really lovely as well, and 2 strands of thread give perfect cover. It makes such a difference to the 'large' appearance 14ct, so much so that I will probably change the fabric in many of the kits I have. Only 'problem' is of course that the picture will turn out much smaller.

The definition on that giraffe is stunningly beautiful. I absolutely adore realistic animals, and this is a particularly gorgeous one.

Thank you for your lovely comments everyone, that is really appreciated. I think I will actually finish the giraffe when it's next up for rotation. My favorites are 'life-like' animals as well.
