Now that the smaller unfinished projects are out of the way, it’s time to face up to the bigger ones… That may sound as though I don’t want to finish them which isn’t true – but I do have a couple of really nice, new designs I want to stitch.
The next project on my list is to stitch the Celtic Cross I was supposed to get finished last year for my Mum’s 70th birthday; only it never happened. So I am determined it will be done for Mother’s Day.
It’s come on quite a bit since I last posted a picture and, if I really work at it, may even be finished in the next week. Once it’s done I’m going to ask around my sister and friends to see if someone can help me make it into a cushion. I may be pretty nifty with cross stitch, but I’m hopeless with a sewing machine!
Once this one is done I need to move onto Dad’s Tutankhamun’s death mask picture. Now that, I’m sure, will be much less fun than this, all those metallic threads – eek.
I’ll let you have an update in a few days on how I’m doing with this. Enjoy your stitching in the meantime.
Oh and if you’re wondering what these new designs are I keep going on about, they’re nothing exciting really, just a couple of small designs which caught my eye in the 2013 Joan Elliott’s Stitcher’s Diary, which was a freebie with a recent The World of Cross Stitching magazine; April and September, if you have a copy and want to see what I’m talking about.
