Digging up Old Finished

I found my cross-stitching books and lots of aida that have been kept away for so long. I wonder why I bought a red aida. Must be in the Christmas mood last year as Margaret Sherry had released her Xmas critters and I just can’t wait to stitch them. Thinking plain aida would be too plain and thought of trying something new, I opted for red instead. Should have gone with oatmeal or sparkly inset, much better but than alas.

They are both done for my surveyors. Really quick and easy to do. I did not manage to take a snap after they went into the cards as I was rushing as they had to leave that very day itself before they went to Philippines. Talk about rush job.

Digging Up My Past

Filed under: Old Works — xstitcherzo @ 3:05 pm

I was going thru some of my stuffs at home (sis knows how many stuffs I have at home) And discover the previous attempts at my cross-stitch, beading and embroidery all fuse together. My UFO’s that would be completed one day (dated 2002). Now that I’ve learn the right technique to cross-stitch properly, no knots, bumps or camel humps, it would be completed.
All of them are done on DMC black aida, cut to suit a card. I’ve even bought the cards. I used to think that black is sexy and mysterious how wrong I was when it is difficult to poke thru the fabric.

Image hosted by Normal cross-stitch, I stopped halfway as I lost the pattern.

Image hosted by The flowers are made by lazy daisy stitch and french knots. The vase supposed to be divided into 3. 1 filled with cross-stitch, another fill with beads and can’t remember what happen to the 3rd gap.

Image hosted by I lost the pattern ot begin with. Stitched with DMC rayon but due to inexperience and lack of patience with the weirdness of the thread, I move to next one.
