I did it. I finished my first cross stitch project! I’m really happy with how it turned out. It doesn’t quite fit the hoop, but I liked the look of it rather than the plastic, black frame it came with. I also think I want to ‘tint’ the fabric with some tea, so it’s not so vibrant white and looks a little more ‘antiquey’.
It’s hanging in Nora’s room; another piece to add to her collage wall.
I really enjoyed doing this project. It made me take some time out of the day to just sit down and relax (part of my me time – see yesterday’s post). I’m excited to try new patterns. I’ve found some really cute ones on Pinterest.
