a gold A

I'd been wanting to cross stitch my first initial for awhile now. 
Working with the gold floss + the loosely woven Monks cloth, was challenging!
However, I am super happy with how my 'A' turned out and I would do it again. 
After I finished the cross stitch letter, I knew that it needed something more. 
I decided that a simple muslin border and a gold running stitch around the edges would do just nicely.
I was right! It was just what the A needed to pop! 

Are any of you working on a fun and challenging cross stitch project?
