I know I know … it's no longer January; but I still want to share with you my cross stitch work.
This little snowman is from Hands On Design 12-month series cross stitch package called A Year of Celebrations.
It's an easy stitch to work on and so so cute.
It was extremely difficult for me stitching on 32 count Dirty Belfast linen called for; which I have never before stitched on. First of all my eyesight is not what it used to be. The second issue was the linen. It is absolutely horrible in regards to the threads in the fabric - very uneven and not so good quality fabric … in my very humble opinion. I'm still very proud of myself for going on and not giving up.
I framed my finished stitch work inspired by Priscilla.
I used an old picture frame from my stash, added a vintage button and made a simple polka dotted bow using burlap ribbon from the Dollar Tree.
I'm currently working on February's and to avoid the headache from stitching on the linen called for, I'm using fabric from my own cross stitching stash. I am hoping to finish it before this coming Thursday … yikes … and with a pinched nerve on my left wrist and wearing a brace!!!
Wish me luck!
