Now that we are settled into our house, and actually have some space, my mom has started bring over old Christmas decorations. It was a lot of fun to go through the boxes and uncover ornaments and figurines that I haven’t seen in more than a decade. From all these treasures, though, there was one that is perhaps the best.
This was the first piece of cross stitch I ever finished. It is a pre-printed design, possible from Dimensions or Designs for the Needle. When I bought it (while in vacation in the U.S.), I didn’t see the listing for the floss colours. So, instead, I spent a lot of time trying to match colours to what was printed on the fabric. I think my fabric choices worked out fairly well. (And if you know more about this piece, please let me know!)
So you still have your first stitched piece? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below, and if you post about on your blog be sure to let me know!
