I finished a little ornament yesterday and I'm very pleased with the outcome. It turned out better than I'd hoped despite having to stitch the one side twice. I sat and sketched out a design for the ATC yesterday too and stitched it this morning. the design is from the Cross Stitcher website here (scroll down to the cross stitch collection entry.) It's an interpretation of it as I thought it was a great quick design and took me 90mins to stitch using threads in my left overs pot. I'm very tempted to join the September ATC swap on bubble if I can make them as quicky as that. I have a feeling ATC's will become another addiction, saying that I've not made a biscornu in over a week, but I do have one to do for an exchange very soon.
Day 11: Do you have a “Stitching Hero” or someone that is just way too awesome for their own good? Do share!
Hmm stitching hero, now thats a toughie, I admire anyone who stitches HAED's or designs of a simular size, nature, complexity. My hat's off to you guys. There are 3 people who spring to mind who challenge me as a stitcher. My good friend Rach who keeps me motivated when I need it and was my first stitching friend, Ann for her generosity and kindness and Laura who sent me my first biscornu and inspired me to have a go myself. Thank you lovely ladies.
Day 12: Where do you keep your stash? Post pictures!
