Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! If you enjoy needles, threads, yarn, and hand made delights, you have found your tribe!
I finished a couple of hand stitched sympathy cards this week. This heart design by Little Lion Stitchery (free pattern when you subscribe) is fun to cross stitch, easy enough to complete quickly, yet challenging enough to keep your interest. I love to stitch with variegated threads. I painted a bit of pink around the centre cutout to make the card less stark white.
Great progress has been made on my Alphabet Sampler. I stitched from right to left on this project, and only have 2 more letters to go. The letter 'B' is almost done, and then there is only 'A' and 'C' to stitch. It has been a vision challenge to stitch on 36 count linen (3 threads over 2). One day I realized I had 3 pairs of glasses in my work space - plus my magnifier lamp! But I forgive it for being so hard to see because it looks absolutely beautiful, and I am very proud of this stitching!
