AND to directly contradict my Minimalist post, I’m going to show another WIP! Behold!
Isn’t she beautiful? I started her 9/1/16. Since I started this, I’ve been doing well with project ADD. My hope is that I can finish one of my four Halloween cross stitch project by Halloween.
This design is by Satsuma Street. I bought an instant download here.
I went with her suggested “Periwinkle” 30 count linen from Weeks Dye Works. I was so excited when I bought the pattern (instantly!!) that I hopped right into my car and drove to my local craft stores for fabric. The next best thing I could find was a light blue 14 count Aida fabric. I bought it and brought it home. But I couldn’t do it. I just loved how the original looked. So, I decided to be patient and #adult. I ordered the linen from JustCrossStitch.com and waited for it to arrive.
My mother was kind enough to text me a pic at work that my package had come in, when I had just started a 9 hour shift. Thanks!! Several impatient hours later, I started this baby at 10:30pm!
I think I’m making good progress. Though I wonder how fast I stitch compared to others…
