TAST Cross Stitch (PS)

I found the green Aida with cross stitch, it is now in the window sill. It is smaller than I remembered and now is it faded and fraying around the edges. It has only 4 rows of stitches; a row of cross stitches in mauve; two rows of half cross stitch, one slanting to left, the other to the right; and a row of crosses with one leg in mauve and the other in pink.

Mum is certain that I stitched all those years ago and she has been proudly displaying it ever since. It also has a function. A clay model trout stands on it. This is a real work of art, created by my older brother when he was at school.
