Before anyone worries, I haven’t abandoned my Christmas cross stitch, but I’ve been working on it since August and I needed a break. There’s only so long you can stay interested in stitching white on red and apparently my limit is 6 months!
I did do a few more of the snowflakes but it’s started to feel like I’m not getting anywhere. I know I am, and I’ve only got about a third left of the whole project to do but that’s still a long way. I think once I finish the bit I’m on it’ll be more exciting again, and then it’ll be time to fill in all the gold which will be fun.
But in the meantime, I’ve started a quick little cross stitch based on the notebooks I designed a couple of weeks ago. I changed the design slightly but here’s where I am after just a week of stitching:
Obvious progress! Yay! I’m using a scrap of 16 count adia in oatmeal and these two colours of floss. It was the hardest thing to narrow my stash down to just two colours! But this blue (dmc 3847) is absolutely gorgeous so that was an easy starting point. It doesn’t show up as nice in the pictures but trust me.
I’ll be going on holiday during the next SAL but I’ll still schedule an update, I’ll probably show you the dozen more snowflakes I’ve been doing on my Christmas cross stitch!
Here’s everyone else that is taking part in our stitchalong:
We all post updates on whatever project we are sourcing every three weeks and is great to see the progress everyone is making.
