cross stitch, SAL

I have no special talents but to try and try again (sal)

I have another update on my stitching to share as part of our Stitch a long. The group posts every three weeks and all the links of everyone else taking part in the SAL is near the bottom of the post.

Here is the photo of where I was last time:passionatelycurious sal

I’ve just about managed to finish it this time. I had to rip then re-rip sections of it out as I wasn’t happy with the colours of the book.

These were my first two attempts at it.


I didn’t think the first one showed the contrast between the pages enough, it’s actually showing up in that picture a lot more than it did in real life. The second I thought the contrast was too much!

So after a short break where I calmed down, I re-ripped it. Please excuse the bad quality photo, I should have taken one like the other two so you could see the difference better. But I’m happier with the colours now and I can breathe a sigh of relief that I don’t have to rip it out again (I’m not sure the fabric would hold up to another rip anyway!).

    1. Haha. I call it frogging when crocheting. It does sound like that! But I’m using a seam ripper on my cross stitch and it just doesn’t sound the same.

    1. Thanks 🙂
      Something a little bit different. It hasn’t got any words on which is something (amazingly) that I’ve never done before lol

    1. Thank you. I had a horrible moment while doing the last version where I thought maybe the first time I did it was the best!


  1. I love the play on fonts! You’re very talented! I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to stitch my own designs; will stick to patterns for now 😉
