I have put Cherry Cordial and Color Delights Plum to the side for now. I have missed cross stitch patterns!! So, I decided to try Lizzie Kate's Fall Alphabet on canvas and I converted all of the colors to Caron Watercolours (my new favorite thread to stitch with!).
The only issue I have (and of course there had to be one!) is that when completed you will see the canvas where there are no stitches, as in needlepoint normally ALL of the canvas is stitched. Well, I tried stitching the background two different times yesterday and it seemed as if the alphabet was just swallowed up by the stitching.
Here is what I have completed so far. Honest opinions please, good or bad. Do you think this will look all right stitched with the canvas showing around the design? Will it look all right framed? Has anyone completed any needlepoint where the entire canvas is not stitched?
I really want this to work and be happy with it. I love stitching on the canvas and being able to use the Caron Watercolors.
I am also going to revive this blog more to show more of my personal thoughts and life, not just stitching. I had been keeping a handwritten journal, but I can type so much faster than I can write, you know? And I can always get this blog printed into a book down the road.
I was off work today and had lunch with my baby sis at her school. She is 6 and in the first grade. Such a fun time! My next weekday off I am going to have lunch with her again.
Happy Monday to you all!
P.S. I am going to sit down now and do some stitching and watch "What Dreams May Come." I just realized it is on instant streaming for Netflix! Yay.
