These are step-by-step photos of a cross-stitch I recently had framed. It was actually a gift for Mom's birthday last year, but I was waiting for a good deal custom framing at Michaels. It's for her office, which is decorated in burgundy, gray, and blues, with Asian art. I'm also making her a second pattern, once I finish the project I'm currently working on.


This one was interesting in that it had a decorative frame printed onto the fabric.


Pretty colors.


Stitching tone-on-tone is really annoying, but it looks cool.




Something in my sweat melts sewing needles; I don't get it.




The pattern.


The real thing,


step


by


step.


The layers on this one were relatively simple.


It's like filling in a coloring book.


But with more counting.








Recognize this guy from the beginning?


Finished and freshly washed.


Detail of the finished project.


And the full image.

Very nice! And great to find a fellow cross-stitcher.

I don't tend to post about stitching all that often, since I didn't know anyone who hung out here did it, too.

I tried learning how to in elementary school but utterly failed. I have a lot of appreciation for this sort of thing!

That looks really cool. I'm glad you shared another "talent" of yours. :D

I just had what is either a terrible or awesome idea:

Stargate cross-stitch.

If someone could do up the pattern with me (I lack drawing skillz), I'd totally stitch it this summer.

V. cool! I do love butterflies. It should look great in your mom's office. :-)

Alas, it's highly unlikely I'll be able to take pictures of it in position, since that's too RL for the 'webs.

Cool
Beautiful pattern.

I'm terrible at finishing cross-stitch... you may have just inspired me to go finish the kitten one I left unfinished two years ago!
