Making toys is very rewarding. Within a couple of hours, you can stitch up a finished softie, ready to be loved.
Unlike making toys, I find that needlework such as cross-stitch and embroidery is a lot of work, especially if it’s a larger picture that’s being stitched. As I mentioned in my last blog post, I have several cross-stitch, embroidery, petit point and crewelwork kits in my stash waiting to be finished. These were collected over several years.
I’ve been working regularly on these kits, so I’ve managed to complete three of these cross-stitch projects. Two are now framed, with one waiting to be framed.
Here is the cross-stitch project that I am current working on:
There are many, many more in the queue, and several kits are not pictured here:
Yes, I do have a lot of work ahead of me, but the only way these will get finished is by working on them one at a time (or maybe two at a time!).
Until next time,
