I’ve squeezed in a little cross stitch time here and there. Not a lot but enough to keep me happy.
I really love this new (for me) system of storing my embroidery floss. I had a big master ring set that had all the floss in it. Then I would take the ones out that I’m using for a specific project and put them in a smaller ring set.
I ended up finding my old floss storage system..I hated this method.
and now it’s all in the new storage system. I had to get another set of rings to hold another master set.
I have this one almost stitched….I just need to stitch the “L”. I didn’t have that color so I was delayed. Happily I had other projects to stitch while I waited to get to town.
So…I stitched this.
I have this one done too!
What I am currently stitching is this one.
After this one I plan to stitch the ABC sampler that is in the same pattern.
I can’t say enough how happy I am that I’m cross stitching.
The last time I posted about it I asked what you all recommend for framing. Someone mentioned having Hubby cut and make frames for me using old frames. Well I’m been hunting at thrift stores and have come up with a couple frames. Now I have to figure out how to tell him the sizes I need.
The next thing I need to do is so learn how to process the pieces once they are stitched. I know nothing about that.
Do I press them? What do I use to mount the cross stitch onto? Does anyone know of a good tutorial that shows me how to stretch the cross stitched pieces?
Help! Any advice would so be appreciated.
I don’t want to end up with many cross stitched pieces simply sitting in a stack and not finished. Goodness know I have enough unfinished quilt projects…I don’t need stacks of unfinished cross stitch projects too.
