You won’t believe this — I am about to actually post a stitching update! Okay, well, maybe I haven’t done any stitching, but here is a stitching picture 🙂
All the work i’ve done this week for the Cross Stitch Magazine Database & Blog has made me really nostalgic for stitching. I have not stitched in a long time, but I am feeling like it may happen again soon. As part of my self-motivation, I decided to take a picture of my WIP that I’ve been working on off an on for two years now. It is a design by Julie Hasler. It appears in her book, Native American Cross-Stitch, as well as in the 2nd issue of Cross Stitch Gold from 2001.
Since the last time I took a picture, I can see that I’ve made considerable progress. There was a good month last summer where i was working on it pretty much everyday, so that had an impact. This weekend I plan to go through my floss that I have for it and fill in some gaps; I know the last couple of times I did pick it up there were certain colors that I did not have, so had to jump around a lot. I don’t like doing that in principle if I can help it. I’ll share an update when I actually start working on it again.
