Progress has been made on my Christmas cross stitch. Lots of it, Too bad I don’t have a way to add another month in before Christmas because it might have actually been done in time but alas.
Here’s where I was after the last update three weeks ago:
I’d just started on that first big bauble. This time I got a lot of work done on the baubles and, if I do say so my self, they look so pretty!
I’m not sure you can tell just how shiny the gold is but it is! The two line and dot baubles have been finished (I’m not even sure you can really tell but there are gold dots in there!) and the big bauble has been finished with its little hat on too.
I’m hoping that for next time I’ll have the last one and a half baubles done and all the stitching for the ‘strings’ they hang on as well. And then it’ll be up to the top sections. Still a lot to do but I’ll have to start thinking about the finish.
Here are a couple of closer shots of before and after just so you can see a bit more detail:
They’ll all be ‘hanging’ on strings that reach up to the next section but I haven’t stitched that far yet.
I’m planning on making it into a wall hanging but I’ve never made one before. Shall I use batting? Shall I use interface? All I think I know at this point is that I will be using some bias binding for the edges. So any suggestions are welcome!
