30 days challenge
Firstly welcome to my new followers and thank you for all your kind comments on my work.
I made great guns on the purple extravaganza yesterday and I'm very pleased with how it looks so far. I've finished the cross stitching on top of the biscornu, so I just need to back stitch. It's a celtic design so needs the backstitch for the definition of the knotwork. The bottom is much simpler so wont take long to stitch. DS helped choose the colours and I must say he has a very good eye for colour.
So to the title of this post. whilst reading Laura's blog Cute Crocheted Creations I came across a post with a 30 days of crocheting. I loved the idea and there doesn't appear to be one I could find based on stitching. I read through the questions on CCC and thought that alot could be applied to stitching too. I've re written all the questions, adding in a few of mine where the question couldn't be made to be stitching related and here goes for my 30 day challenge:
Day 1: What was your first finished project?
My first finished project was an Eeyore design by Designer Stitches. I saw it in a catalogue and thought wonder if I could cross stitch? apparently I could! It came as a pair and I made a fair few mistakes on it. I had no idea about fractionals and no one to ask so I had to frog a fair bit. Dividing the threads seemed barmy to me, but I did do it and looking at it now I don't think it was a bad effort. The pair hang on the wall in DD's pink palace now.
