Another fun stitching art that I enjoy immensely is cross stitch. I made a very time consuming cross stitch Christmas Stocking for my oldest daughter last year and have been working on another one for the next oldest daughter. I set it aside for a bit to work on various other projects, but have recently picked it up again to try to finish before Christmas this year.
I decided to work on this little bird – I like to finish different motif’s and then do the backstitching on them right away. Since backstitching is NOT my favorite thing to do, I try to get as much done as I go as I can.
This is what the little bird looks like now after about an hour of stitching. Not too much to go before I can backstitch him. Isn’t he so cute?!
