Progress! I was able to spend some time this week on my project and I’m happy with the progress I’ve made so far. I’ve learned a few things too…
- when finishing up a string, don’t trim it so close to the project. They tend to pop out over time.
- bury the ends when you are done with the string and then trim. that way the back looks nice and clean and the threads don’t pop out from the front. (too late for this project)
- just keep going, one floss at a time.
Here’s what it looked like last time the picture came through:
Here’s what it looks like now..
I finished the embroidering the details on the left side and the letter “E” in Welcome. Next step is to get the right border completed and work on the details of the right side.
My Goal for 2016 for cross stitching is to get the “welcome” project done and get started on my farm piece.
