Since I’ve rediscovered cross stitching, I’ve been having fun with it. I recently completed a couple of birthday projects for others.
I finished this little number for Kim’s birthday. I was thrilled to find a 5×5 square frame for it – I thought it worked perfectly that way. I might need to stitch one of these up for myself (in different colors, of course).*
Both of these are on 14-count aida cloth with 2 strands of floss.
I’ve had a lot of crafting going on in the background lately – I’ve got a sweater and a shawl that are nearing completion. Well, the body of the sweater is very nearly done, then there are sleeves and a collar. The shawl is in the middle of 4-5 inches of the garter stitch border – it’s slow going at the moment, but will get done soon enough (though I’m a little obsessed with the sweater at the moment). I’m also stitching a couple other things and have ideas for weaving projects percolating in my brain. So many ideas, so little time.
