Cross Stitch SAL update

It’s time to share some more progress on the cross stitch project I’m working on.

More gold stitching but this time the section above what I did last time. I’m still really liking the gold stitching but haven’t managed to do as much as I’d like.

I’m not going to show you and then and now, instead I’m going to show you what the part I’m working on looked like before the gold.

So here is the bit I’m working on with just white stitches:

And here it is now with some gold:

I’ve finished that Scandinavian snow flakes border and moved on to filling in the swirly bits. The part around the ‘let it snow’ is done so you can see how the lettering will stay blank with the red fabric showing through. Hopefully next time I’ll finish this bit and more up to the baubles.

    1. Thank you. Fingers crossed it will actually be done by Christmas. I remember that being my goal last year though….

  1. Jess, this is so gorgeous! I love the gold, and I love the letters using the negative space for the red to show through. Autumn is my favorite season, but this makes me feel like working on a Christmas project!!!
