This year I participated for the first time in the annual Stitch Maynia madness which is actually pretty fun and the best part is there are no rules!
I started this sampler on May 1st. and by mid May I worked on it off and on. About 3 days ago I decided that it was time to finally get it done … and so I did!
This is my first sampler and I enjoyed stitching it. While stitching during the month of May, I watched lots of YouTube Flosstube videos, and learn so many techniques and tips along the way. This actually came in pretty handy and as I followed along the way, and is slowly and surely improving my stitching.
I must confessed that I did not followed the chart to a T. For example: I used floss colors on hand, several mistakes were not fixed (like not counting correctly or missing a stitch), improvised errors, and so on.
Right now I'm just happy I finished something this big! I simply framed it for now, and maybe later on I will Priscillify it.
I know it's not a July cross stitch theme, but since it has the American flag, I thought it would work here for now.
I'm recycling a square frame I've had for years and in storage, and gave it new life. The stand was a gift from Hobby Lobby. The Aida fabric came from a thrifty find. I found over 2 yards at my favorite thrifty store for a great price. It was white, but I tea dyed it...a first for me!
