A New Cross Stitch
As much as I planned to finish Santa and the Mouse and one other cross-stitch before beginning something new, I really needed a break from the large "confetti" sections in the ongoing projects. So, I pulled out the QS Red Hearts (QS = quick stitch) chart I purchased from Heaven and Earth Designs. The artwork is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I love pink and brown and hearts and vines, so I just love this chart!
In November of last year, I put about 3 hours into this chart. However, with 2 over 1, I feared it was going to get bulky and difficult to stitch. So, I tore out all of the stitching (which also took nearly 3 hours, as it was all so tightly packed in) and began fresh with 1 over 1 on 28-count Monaco Evenweave. Here is a link to what it will look like.
This is roughly 6 hours and 15 minutes of stitching. I cannot wait to see this one grow. I will share another update on the first Monday in July.
I am linking up with Monday Stitchery Link Party #9 at Super Mom - No Cape. (If you hand stitch anything, I encourage you to join the party!)
Thanks for stopping by!
