It’s time for another link up with the stitch along. We post updates on whatever stitching projects we’re working on every three weeks.
Check them out as they have some brilliant projects going on.
I finished my project last time around so I have a new start to show this time.
I’m concentrating on the center of my cross stitch. I’m not sure if you can tell yet, maybe squint? It’s a leaf. And so far I’ve used, neon pink, neon oranges, burnt reds and I’m onto gold! I’m really hoping I’ve gotten the colours right and they’ll look okay when all is done. It was looking quite good for a while there but I’m not so sure about that bright orange in the middle. I’m going to leave (punny) it in until I’ve at least finished this one leaf. I’m hoping it looks better when I add all of the yellow colours.
It actually isn’t as shocking on the fabric as they are in the skeins so hopefully they all mix well and look….leaf like together.
It’s exciting to see things starting to form. I can pick out the edges of the leaf and also the letters of the quote going through the middle. I might add some Green in the next update. I know, who would have guessed I would add green in a pattern full of leaves, right?
I’ve also finally finished the tutorial for the pin cushion I showed you all as my finish last update. And I’ve uploaded the pattern and tutorial to my etsy which you can see here if you wanted to.
And I also thought I would show you the little demo pin cushion that I made for the tutorial because its small and cute.
