                          I finished the bat.

I think some of the threads were thinner as some specks of aida can be seen through the stitching. I have been using 2 strands on 16 ct aida with the other designs I have recently done and they don't have this problem. Same brand, DMC, but maybe different quality cotton in certain colours that I have ? Anyhoo, hopefully my daughter will like it. It just needs to be ironed and then I shall post it to her. She wants some gothic frames for the crosstitches she has done so that is why I won't be framing it myself.
