Sister-in-law is Polish (moved here in her teens) and so I thought this might be a nice thing to hang on her wall. I had a frame just the right size, too. Design is on 14ct but it doesn't seem to be Aida, it's very shimmery and acts more like linen.
Design comes from Beautiful Cross-Stitch by Better Homes & Gardens. The bottom checkerboard is supposed to be red and white, but I just stitched the red squares - trying to see the white thread gave me a headache. :(
