Retro stitching

I wanted to do something slightly retro and whilst cross-stitch isn't generally my thing it seemed to fit the bill.  This is, unsurprisingly, a new home card for some friends.

I'm quite pleased with the graduated colour in the lettering, (this was take 2 and involved a certain amount of unpicking), although in retrospect the darkest red should have been at the top (note to self: don't skimp on the unpicking). 

There's definitely more to cross-stitch than I'd first thought.
