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.

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!
