I’ve made some progress on my Christmas cross stitch. Unfortunately I managed to add two stitches into the middle somehow so its now two stitches wider than my pattern…. I’m honestly not sure how I did that. And it hasn’t ruined anything it just means I have to be very aware every time I start a new section otherwise the edges won’t be straight.
Here’s where I was last time compared to now:
The reason I didn’t go back and fix the extra two stitches is because I went around and did the border of the section and started filling it in before I realised and that was A LOT to unpick so…. I left it.
While that looks like a reasonable amount of progress, I’ve actually been spending most of my stitching time on my Hufflepuff cross stitch. I got it started and then well, it’s just so much fun to stitch that I’ve almost finished it.
Here it is:
I’ve done all the actual cross stitching and all the back stitching on the top. I just have to do the border so that I can sew it together and make it an actual pin cushion. Although, I have finished the black thread I was using but I’m sure I have more of it somewhere…..
I’m very excited to get this done. I’ll probably have it all sewn up and 3d by the end of next week. And that will be all four houses done! I’ll have to think of something else to design after as these were really fun.
