Welcome to the mid September hand stitching party! Today we are relaxing with our colourful threads and yarns, and adding stitches to the beautiful creations we are bringing into to the world!
I decided I would try to finish the old cross stitch I wrote about a few weeks ago. Everyone was so encouraging to finish it (and I thank you for taking the time to make a comment and share your ideas!) I found all the needed floss colours in my DMC stash, with an abundance of the greens for some unknown reason!
I have seen some of our cross stitchers make a single strand grid that matches the pattern graph, so I tried that to get myself started, but look what happened - I'm out 1 square on the horizontal line on the right. UGH! Not a good start! But I'll keep working on it today and see if I can make more progress.
What are you working on today? Like up your blog post, or instagram, or photograph below and share your slow progress with us.
