Hey friends, I am so sorry posting has been slow this summer! I am finding I enjoy big projects now more than smaller ones, so of course that means it takes me a longer time to finish them!
First I just want to say its the 2nd annual Cross Stitch day this Friday the 14th. So here is a little freebie off the web:
Be sure to celebrate by treating yourself to some cross stitch craziness. 🙂
I also wanted to give you all an update on my Kokopelli. It has been a WIP (work in progress) since Christmas, and I did have to put it down several times to work on other things, but its still been slow going. SO many quarter stitches on 22 count Aida! WHAT was I THINKING? lol Here are the progress pictures. I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Soon It will be completed!
Stitched on 22 count hardanger cotton. (22 stitches per inch, or 484 stitches per square inch) Project size: 130×96 = 12,480 full stitches, Full, half and quarter stitches were used. Finished project size on 22 count will be: 5.5 x 7 inches
29 DMC floss colors were used. Tapestry style method ( full stitched from wall to wall)
As you can see, he is nearly done! Just the boarder left to finish. Woot! I hope to have him done this week.
Thanks as always for checking out my blog. If you are addicted to cross stitch also, send me a shout-out! I love to learn about other stitchers, and what they love. If you are thinking about getting into cross stitch for the first time, or getting back into it after a long break, good for you! Welcome! I am always willing to answer questions in the comments on any post, so please do speak up!
Until next time, Happy Stitching!
