First Cross stitch

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.
IMG_4887I 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.

  1. Congratulations on your first cross stitch completion, it’s beaitiful!

    Maybe look at getting a smaller hoop frame to mount the piece before staining? Easily accessible and reasonable to buy.

    Well done again and welcome to the club! 🙂
