As I’m finishing up the last of my Christmas crafting, I figured this would be the best post to end this quasi-hiatus with. I originally started learning how to cross stitch for a Christmas gift, so it’s only fitting. Next week I’ll be back with regular, current posts. Thank you for your patience and I hope you enjoyed this look into my past forays into craftiness!
As I’m sure you’re all aware from previous posts, I’m a cross-stitcher (check my Pinterest board). I’ve been stitching for about two years now. And this is the kit that started it all. I stitched a bit of it to get the basics down, but then I set it to the side and worked on the pattern I really wanted to make.
In the process of organizing my crafting supplies, I found the not even half-finished kit and decided that it was probably about time to finish it up!
You can see in the heart where I started, not all the x’s are the same. And I’m actually really proud of the back stitching, because I’m not very good at it to begin with. I’ve been thinking about picking up a bunch of those little beginner cross stitch kits, finishing them, and then just leaving them places. On a bus, at work, in a coffee shop, etc. I don’t know if people would pick them up and keep them or throw them away, but I think it’d be a fun little project.
And bonus for today: my girl Juri wanted to know what I was taking pictures of and wanted to join in on the photography fun!
