Cross Stitch the Leaning Tower of Pisa

April 19, 2013 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

If we can’t travel to Torre pendente di Pisa, lets cross stitch it onto a pillow. After, we’ll spend evenings sipping Vin Santo, eating castagnaccio, and lolling about daydreaming of a little visit to the Italian city of Pisa. The folks at 7th Heaven have a free chart for this lovely tilting 183’ tall building. With 294 steps, we’d best put on our walkin’ shoes before attempting the arduous climb.
