Sometimes I want to work on something that isn't quilting. Still want to use a needle and something that is at least semi portable so what did I find? I found a kit that I had gotten at one point or another from one place or another (so long that I can't remember the details) in cross stitch. I had a bad start to it though. I had done around 140 stitches and THEN discovered that those 140 stitches were going in the wrong direction. Actually I had stitched them right, it was the fabric that was going in the wrong direction. Yeah, that's it. I'll blame it on the fabric. One day to stitch; a second day to unstitch. That's how I craft. LOL. Here's the pattern that I'm working on. I'm not sure I'll do the black and white border. I'm thinking of changing it up a little bit.
It wasn't long before I wantedd to go back to my applique. This is block one from the Rose of Sharon BOM. I'm making progress which is good since we have six blocks now. I know, I'm a little behind but I'll eventually get caught up.
