For 20 years my life was sidetracked by other responsibilities. I used to produce finished cross stitch projects at a manic rate. I am looking at new patterns, but I want to hear from anyone else who took an unexpected hiatus. Are you struggling with patterns that include partial cross stitches? Are you able to make color substitutions? Do counts smaller than 14 hurt your eyes? Did your muscle memory for beads, knots, and top-stitching and other non-standard stitches take long to rebuild? Transform any advice. I’m looking forward to being a stitcher again.
One more finished. This one goes to my daughter-in-law. They live in Florida, and she loves snowmen.
DH posted this on my FB page. He comes up with some good ones.
It appears this project includes only the pattern. Is that true? No information on cloth or colors needed to complete? Thank you!!
I have a cross-stitch pattern calling for a “full and 1/4 stitch” under the same/single symbol. It doesn’t specify what this means. If it means do 2 stitches in the same box, then I don’t know if it matters which stitch is done first- the full or the 1/4. But it might mean do one stitch that is a 1/4 stitch longer than a full stitch. The end effect should look like a solid thick bar there. Does anyone know if it matters? I’ve never seen this on a pattern before. Thank you.
Make tree go almost boom...
I’m trying to find a pattern for a small waving Canada flag. Can anyone help me please.
Yes, it’s early (even for me) but my husband talked me into it.
My husband is rebuilding an old car when it's finished he wants me to sew him a picture of it. I need to know if this is even possible, or if I have to contact THEA ha ha. Nice to talk to others with the same troubles. SIS
How did I ever function without this marvellow aid! I use it a lot. You can fasten even the shortest threads with it. I highly recommend de-tailor.......👍
Is the stocking pattern stamped or counted?
I am cross stitching a 12x16" piece and rather than frame it I would like to make a wall hanging. I do not sew but if I could figure out how to get a piece of fabric on the back of the piece, I could make two tabs at the top and hang it on a decorative rod. I just want it as simple as possible. Thanks for any advice you can give.
please help me find these floss numbers
Newest WIP- bit the bullet and started my first project on " over 2" fabric ( 28 ct raw opalescent linen). LOVE the sparkley fabric but it is kind of like tiny lights in your vision! Thought this would work up fairly quickly but keep pulling out stitches because I've chosen the wrong hole🙄. Am excited to attempt a new challenge but am feeling "one step forward, two steps back" at the moment! I am sure some of you are shaking your heads thinking been there, done that! 😄
For the past 3 years I have been living 6 months in New England and 6 months in NC.. I do this so my sister and I can keep my Mom in her own home instead of a nursing home. We alternate the care. Needless to say, when I am down south with my Mom, finding things to do while sitting many hours a day in the living room with her ( she spends her time coloring in adult coloring books), I decided to pick up my favorite past time that I had put aside for 15 years! Counted cross stitch.
