Cross Stitch Interlude

Listen to Your Heart is completed.  I pulled the project out of my cross stitch WIP box, and concluded that I was done.  I decided that the lettering on the pattern was not what I was after, and I reworked it with a simple “This is the Day” phrase.

Now – for framing.  This is the hardest part of cross stitch for me.  I am terrible at coordinating colors and mats, and usually don’t get much help from the folks at the frame shop.



Listen to Your Heart (Cross Stitch)

This project is nearly complete, except for the lettering and a little outlining (and finishing the fabric, and matting, and framing).  I like the collage and “natural” feel to this piece.  The copyright date on this piece is 2001, so I’ve probably been working on it for 10 years – exclusively at continuing ed seminars.

Teec Nos Pos Update (Cross stitch)

Another Cross Stitch Update – Yes, this is a KNITTING blog, but since I also like cross stitch (though I don’t spend much time at it), this is an opportunity for me to watch my progress on that front, too.

Status as of December, 2014, law seminar, which is when I usually work this piece.  Helps me focus on the speakers and keeps me from being wiggly in the uncomfortable seats of the conference halls.
