My lil kits

This is a Bucilla cross stitch kit. I used dmc floss in stead of the floss that came with it. I stitched it on drop cloth canvas from walmart hard wear department.
This kit has fractional stitches
And multi color floss
It also has running stitch

It was a nice way to build some skills.

I also add a photo of the back I'm trying to get the back to look better.

Materiel change ideas grow.

I enjoy taken the route that is not traveled .in the stitch world that means stitching on Different fabrics. Oh buddy I thought I found new gold when my eyes caught the canvas in house ware. It had the consistent hole pattern. So I bought it home and studied it a lil more to see which way to cut quarts from it. And then I start my love for canvas
All the Muslin I have 32 or 28 I can't tell my eyes are different these days what do I do .
I have bought some printed linen to stitch on but as you all know intent changes when possibilities enter a room of thought. Materiel change ideas grow.

The lil kit lesson

First thing I noticed is the lil pic hurt my eyes. I found a blog that spoke of enlarging the pic to see the the details better. So I did. Yes it was easier on my eyes. Next I put the key hand written on the side .
Thirdly I used colored pencils and highlighters to mark my progress.

Small kits give large rewards

Times came and left and I felt I had no feeling after a finished piece . My son came to me and said mom stitch something small and you will feel the finish bug to do more. He was rite. Wraping my head around the beauty and cuteness I glowed again. I finished.! I am on the way once again. Sometimes I think we have to recharge in our hearts to help our hope be come beliefs .
