As promised, here’s the update on my cross stitching and blackwork projects. First up, my Save the Stitches blackwork sampler.
I love this thing — it’s a ton of fun to work and it’s going to be amazing when I hang it on my wall. My camera sometimes has trouble picking the patterns up, so here are two close-ups to show you the stitching better:
Next, you may recall that I was working a horse pattern that I’d wanted to do forever but didn’t have the exact right materials for. It’s coming along well:
I don’t feel like ripping it out and I don’t really have a better option, so I’m just not going to worry about it — it looks okay from a distance, and I suspect part of the reason I don’t like it is that I’ve seen the original pattern so I know what it’s supposed to look like.
Finally, I don’t think I’ve actually worked on my Morning Flight since last time you saw it, but I’m including it here for completeness’ sake (plus pulling it out to photograph made me really want to start working on it again!).
