Christmas Starts Early for a Slow Cross Stitcher
My first completed cross stitch. Hopefully I'll get neater as well as quicker. I made a few errors, not least, running out of the correct colour of yellow thread. Also I didn't secure my ends tightly enough at the beginning resulting in some unravelling. Who'd have thought that the threads would be so keen to escape through the holes?
The 12am bells herald my pay day so I'll bypass Smith's tomorrow and purchase graph paper to think about doing some of my own designs which would be a lot of fun and even more satisfying I think
I have another far more exciting cross stitch project lined up too but I'll reveal more later.
