All the X's


 I have been stitching
this was the first one on linen
in many years
30 count using 2.5 reading glasses
a Stacy Nash design using floss from my very small stash

Next up more of the same
made it up as I went along using alphabets
and numbers from various charts

All my cross stitching I'll be keeping for now
until I get enough smalls
to fill a couple of trenches

Be Kind by The Pinkeep
you can find her designs on Etsy

This is stitched on some old linen I dyed over
20 years ago, no idea of the count
so many mistakes you'd think I never learned to count

I don't care!

Still using floss from my stash
though it has increased over the past few weeks
lots of packages in the mail
will be picking up DMC this morning 
for a few missing shades

I have been having a blast shopping online
stitching galore
purchased a printer for my downloads
still need to hook it up

I'm back to hooking after I finish this little piece
the cats and pumpkins are calling

Still waiting to hear from the vet
regarding the dental surgery for Melrose
they are woefully understaffed like everyone else...

Wishing you a beautiful Saturday

Wow! You are really stitching up a storm! Love it!! I've never seen that Stacy Nash design and I thought I had seen them all (I'm a huge fan of her designs). I think you should try reproducing some of your wonderful hooked kitties and pumpkins in cross stitch designs. Hint Hint. 😉 ~Robin~
