2013 Crazy January Challenge
I decided to pick a chart that I have had for quite some time and is called Tired Wings from Celtic Rose Needlecraft.
As you will see from the second photo I have not made much progress. This was mainly to the time it took me to measure, cut and hem the fabric and find out all the floss. The chart requires 76 different colours and after going through my floss boxes I am still 12 short, two of which were required for the start. Anyway I muddled on as best I could.
This is what it will hopefully look like when I finish it.
and this is what I stitched. I am stitching it on 32 ct white jobelan. I am hoping to return to this one shortly.
I picked the Autumn Scissor Cradle and Fob set from issue 91 of Itch to Stitch the Cross Stitch Guild magazine designed by Jane Greenoff.
This is the front view of the finished project
Also today I received another birthday card and floss from the Heart and Stitches FB group this time from Pia Whitaker.
She sent me a cute owl card and a skein of threadwork overdyed cotton and a Rainbow Gallery PB Treasure Braid. I love them both :-)
