Cross Stitch

After my trip to Olympia I decided I wanted to get my cross stitch out again, what actually happened is that I saw a couple of patterns at Olympia but couldn’t justify buying them as I hadn’t touched my cross stitch since before I have to have my shoulder operated on a few years ago.

I decided to go with the easiest cross stich I had started (out of at least half a dozen), which was a Lizzie Kate ‘sampler’ this particular sampler is made up out of 6 double flip living with charm charts, each chart has two words and a bit of decoration for each and a charm to be stitched on last..


I had already finished Dream/Love, remember/GIVE and was half way through Listen. I have now finished Listen/LEARN, and half way through Believe/CARE which means I have just started CARE.


I do counted cross stitch which means that the fabric doesn’t have printing on it, you use a separate chart to transfer the picture to the fabric.


I have been cross stitching on and off since school, the first picture I started was this, as usual I went for the overly complicated picture that took about 10 years to complete, I did finish a couple of easier/smaller pictures in that time.


The problem I have is that I don’t really have anywhere to hang them once they are finished, we appear to have filled up the house with Disney pictures and I have only a certain amount of wall space in my room, I suppose I could rotate them.

More soon….
