"Make Good Art."
"S" is for... | Cross Stitch

Backstitching. Oy.

I have quite a few cross stitch WIPs going on right now...and one very important one, which is a baby gift for one of my good friends from high school.

Now that her son is already a year old, I guess I should, you know, finish stitching it.  

Ahem.

I don't want to give away too many peeks of the gift, so I'll just show this...

As you can imagine, that backstitch is KILLER.  But....it does look pretty awesome.  The pattern is from Rosewood Manor, and is called ABC Tapestry.  I'm stitching it on 40 ct......something.  I'll have to get back to you on the actual color.  It's a Silkweaver fabric, that I know. 

Getting old sucks.  I can't remember anything.  (sigh)

I'm stitching with DMC 843, which is a dark navy.

I promise to give a few more updates as I go along, and I'll post a pic of the finished product once I'm done!

What are you all stitching this weekend?!  It's supposed to be nice here in Philly, so I know I'm going to try and get out and enjoy the weather, but I will be working on this gift, as well!

Much love ~~~
