Latin Quote Cross Stitch Update (sal)

It’s been three weeks since I shared my cross stitch with you (how? Time is moving too fast!)

I’ve been on holiday so I didn’t think I’d have much progress to share with you but I did rather strategicly decide to do the small gold lettering so it LOOKS like I did lots!

Here’s where my latin quote was last time out…

Some of you guessed the quote right last time and some of you were just slightly off. The quote will read Veni, Vidi, Amavi. I came, I saw, I loved. A little bit of a twist on the more familiar I came, I saw, I conquered.

This time, as I said, I started on the little gold letters…

I’m not sure how clear the little letters are but I’m really liking the gold against black fabric. Hopefully next time I’ll have a little more to share with you but everything is up in the air here at the moment so who knows!

    1. Thank you! I’m glad. There isn’t that much interest in this pattern so the two colours and two sizes had to carry the whole thing!

    1. It is but it’s not the usual dmc metallic thread. I’m using kreinik gold braid. I got a lot of practice using it on my last project and it’s not as bad as I feared! And it looks amazing which is always a plus!

    1. Thanks. I came, I saw, I loved is rather happier and warmer a quote than I came, I saw, I conquered. Don’t you think?!

    1. Thanks. It is really stunning against the black. I was worried the black wouldn’t pop without any bold colours on it but I think the gold works

    1. I hope so! I was worried when it was just the white that it wouldn’t look as striking as I’d hoped but now the gold is in I think it definitely helps!

    1. Thank you! I’m so glad the gold looks good because I was a bit worried about the finish when it was just the white
