Page 5, Row 7 is done!  And I actually noticed a little mistake… You can’t really tell with these pictures but I know that if I let it go on, you’ll be able to tell once row 8 is finished.  So I need to rip out the mistake and re-stitch it. Luckily it’s only few stitches that need to be fixed.  This week I’m working on row 8 and I hope that row 8 gets finished in the next couple of weeks.

I received Gamer this week and I wanted to start stitching right away.  But I restrained myself.  Since I started watching FlossTube and I’m learning a bit more of the cross stitching craft I decided to start right and prep my fabric.

I did press the fabric but the manhandling I had to do to add the floss marks wrinkled it all back up.  Oh well.  If you look really close the purple dashes are purple floss that marks the centers of the fabric.  The orange dashes are bolded lines on the pattern.  I hope that this will help me with the project.  It’s the most difficult cross stitch project I’ve ever worked on so I’m hoping doing this will help me.  I want to get all these marked immediately so I can start stitching.

Happy Friday!

Happy Stitching!

  1. I’ve been watching your progress on “mama’s bukid” since you started it. I can’t remember if you posted a picture of what it looks like finished, but I enjoy watching the design unfold as you sew along.

    • Thanks! Unfortunately I lost the picture that came with the project originally. To be honest, I can’t remember what it is supposed to look like so it’s a surprise for me too! 🙂
