Here is my progress on start #2 - as a reminder, it's supposed to look like this:
The tea things and the daises are solidly stitched, but I didn't want to stitch all that white on white fabric. So, instead of doing in on 14 count white aida, I chose to do it on 28 count Glass Blue Monaco. Here's my start:
I finished all of the B5200 in the daises and have started on the other colors. I'm looking forward to working my way down the vase!
Here's start #3 - I have a lot of doctor appointments coming up and I wanted something small to take with me - it's still going to get its five days of work, but if for some reason I don't finish it, it'll go in my purse. (I finished the Love, Love, Love kit that was going about in my smaller purse, but I keep forgetting to take a picture!)
It's a free Fizzy Moon kit that came with an issue of World of Cross Stitch. It's called 'Friends' and is to be finished into a little card. I'll probably give it to my mom, 'cause she'll use it to decorate with :D
And now, another China kit :D :D :D
This one is a big one (yay!) and is called 'Tiger Family'. Here's the picture on the booklet.
And the pattern page layout:
Twenty four fairly solid-stitch pages. This is what came out of the package - a big, heavy piece of fabric with three packs of two needles each! I hope these don't make my fingers burn like the others did! Six extra needles is a nice thing :D
When I unfolded it, this is the floss pile I saw. It's all sorted, no worries there, it's just folded around the floss sorters. I think this one has 44 colors.
Then I unfolded the giant fabric - it's just shy of four feet long and about 30 inches tall:
Yeeks! This is going to take a while! But I think I'm going to love every stitch! I can't wait until my Dad has time to make my big frame so I can work on one of these giant kits!
Happy Stitching guys! I'll be back around the 15th with whatever I start next!
