Good morning! It's a fine winter's day here at about 1 degree. I'm so thankful our furnace is in working order!
Are any of you cross stitchers? I had always thought I didn't like cross stitch. Maybe because of the overabundance of really icky designs out there? But then I started seeing the sweetest designs on IG by the frosted pumpkin stitchery and then came along this book:
The cover got me. Sweet and simple designs. (I ordered it here from the sweet Nobuko)
The very day I received the book, I did the wellie. And this morning I did the strawberry (from a different book).
I'm seriously hooked. But, it's really made me realize how bad my eyes are. I have to pull my glasses down to the end of my nose so I can see what I'm doing. Maybe a magnifier is in order? But it would have to be one that clipped to my glasses because I need both hands free. Anyone have any tips on where to find such a thing?
This is Leila's Ringo Pie block. She asked for something that speaks of ourself and this block nails me to a board. The pink linen was thrifted from a vintage tablecloth, the pitcher fabric was given to me by a dear friend, and the retro "kitchenalia" design is so me.
It really feels good to get a tardy bee block done.
