Doomed to not get any machine sewing done, following doctor’s instructions to “rest”, I’ve been flitting between several cross stitch projects, but wanted a little more excitement in my life . . . so after browsing on Elizabeth Almond’s site, I printed out a couple of her free blackwork designs.
I made use of some leftover threads from a recent cross stitch finish (Statement Flowers) and cut myself a couple of small pieces of cream 14 count aida . . . after a few evenings of stitching comfortably, with my feet up and back supported by special cushion . . .
First one is called “Colour Flower”, stitched in green, pink and purple.
Second one is called “Freestar”, stitched in black and turquoise.
As you can see, even on 14 count aida, they’re only small: 2.5” square. I’ll be finishing them off soon – once I’ve decided exactly what I am going to do with them.
