So in perfect judgment I started a little cross stitch project. This is a freebie from The Workbasket.
|30 by 51stitch count, white evenweave, Weeks Dye Works thread|
I used to cross stitch a lot, but got sidetracked by all this quilting. I actually intended for the blog to have both. This particular stitchery is made from a variegated thread on a fabric called evenweave. It is not aida or linen, but it is very good if you want to learn to stitch on linen. I will never go back to aida as the holes in the fabric do not appeal to me and linen comes in a very large array of colors and size of weave. I use James John petite tapestry needles to save on thread waste. I am making another hedgehog in brown varigated thread on linen and hope to use one of them on an ipad cover.
I'll leave you with a few pictures that have been inspiring me this week.
You had me at Hello...
Eeep. Look at these trees.

As a side note, I've always thought the Hello Kitty would make a great embroidery along!
