I have decided on my new counted cross stitch project now that I have completed this
It is a design by Kim Norlien licensed to Dimensions using 18 count Aida cloth and the finished size is 16″ x 12″.
I laid out all that came in the kit
Prepared the cloth first by ironing it, then fold to find center of cloth. I marked the center square with a pen. I also tapped the edged with masking tape to prevent fraying.
I use a wood scroll frame that my Mom had gotten me many years ago(sorry for the blurry pic).
Found the center of the pattern, thread the needle with my first color…
And I am off and stitching!
After a couple hours work during commercials of a very sad turn-out to the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers game, I was able to accomplish this much.
Wow, a couple hours work does not look like much does it? And those are only half stitches too! Well, I am hoping to post regular updates on my progress!
Please share any you are working on and happy stitching.
