Thought I would start off with something different today. I took a baby blanket I’ve been working on for years to work to finally make some progress. It’s just a basic double stitch in a basketweave.
Not cross stitch, obviously, but a fun little extra!
So on to new stuff. I actually held off to post until I got this!
Crystal Cyprium from Picture This Plus! It’s beautiful and I love the sparkles in it!
But, and there’s always a but lol, it’s a lot lighter than I expected. This was meant to go with my Dragons of Sumatra, here’s a reminder if you forgot.
I wanted a deep chocolate brown and that turquoise floss so it would really pop. This color wasn’t chocolate brown but I liked how it looked on screen.
This is significantly lighter. Even with good light the picture makes it a LOT darker. I may end up using it for the companion piece because I feel like it would go good with the green I want to use. I’m going to use it, on what is up in the air lol. The pic actually has the flosses on it with me trying to see if any popped like I wanted it to.
So finally an update on my Burgundy Sampler.
Notice a difference? I had to frog the first one! I miscounted and placed it wrong. Ugh. It happens.
Got this piece done as well with a lot less drama.
And I unrolled, but left on the rods so it’s kind of awkward, and the lighting isn’t the greatest, but here’s the full pic of what I’ve completed.
I’m so close to finishing the first page!
I’ve got a super busy couple weekends coming up so I’m not sure how much work I can do on it, but I do hope to get some stuff done on Sundays and definitely my 3 day weekend at the end of this month. I love this project but am super excited to start some of the others too lol.
