I’m really pleased with this, it took a while to do as I kept stopping and starting on it but was worth it in the end.
It’s actually the second of two board games which I’ve stitched; the other being Ludo. They came from from one of the cross stitch magazines a number of years back.
I saw them at the time and mentioned to my Mum that I liked them and she bought them both for me as a Christmas present that year. They sat in my cross stitch box for quite a while after that – you know how it is! Anyway I eventually got round to stitching the Ludo board about a year or so ago and followed that with this snakes and ladders kit.
All I have to do now is back it with red self adhesive felt and add a ribbon to tie it when closed and it’s done!
We’re having a exhibition in a month or so at the cross stitch club I attend, Spen Valley Cross Stitch so I think I’ll display these two there.
Approx time to complete: over a year, off and on
A lovely kit though nothing to sort the threads onto. The colours are lovely and bright. The repetition of the grid and border made it quite easy to work through the pattern.
