I needed a break from watching Netflix so I started catching up on Stitch and Stuff, the cross stitch podcast of Kim and her daughter, Sarah. They inspired me to pick up my cross stitch WIP. Because of that, I am now halfway through The Cross-Eyed Cricket pattern:
I feel the “T” has the most detail. I dreaded having to backstitch the spider’s legs as my original intention was to stitch each one separately, but I just kept stitching continuously and the back view actually came out tidy.
I have three more letters to go. They seem to consist of straightforward stitching.
I’ve ordered a new cross stitch frame to work from, a Q-Snap. I ordered a large size since my two WIP’s are larger than my embroidery hoops. The plan is to work monogamously on this Autumn piece so by late September, it’ll be done.
Until our next chat, I bid you farewell. TTYS.
