10 cross stitch

This is a simple challenge I’m setting for myself, to make ten cross stitch projects. It doesn’t have a deadline because I can’t handle deadlines right now.

I do, however, want to keep stitching. It’s one of my favorite crafts and something that I can pick up and put down as needed. Like a book, I want to always have one going. My style is simple, “modern grandma” if you will, so there’s no reason I can’t get through more projects than I do.

Also, they won’t count until I  finish them off. Right now I have one that’s been done for a couple of months but I haven’t found the right frames for it, and I hope to be able to share it soon. (It’s actually one of my January goals.)

Any other cross stitchers out there?

    From Amanda:

    MEEEE! Except I have six projects going at the same time because I am insane and easily distracted by pretty new things.

    You also take on what seem to be very large and difficult projects. Me, I’m like…I’ll just do this flower, or this sampler. Nothing too hard please!

    Yes! I have recently discovered it (I’m a long-time knitter) after purchasing a kit from Rosy Little Things. I have another pattern and all the thread for a new project, I just need to get started. Good luck on your projects!

    Ooh, I love her blog but have never looked at her shop! Which kit did you do? I love the sampler style and may have to get one too. :)

    I’ve done two of her alphabet samplers – the daisy one and the winter woods one, and right now I’m stitching some felt ornaments from her Snowy Day kit. The kits aren’t always available, but when they are I try to snatch them up. =)

    From Nora:

    Does it count if you cross stitch but there is a pattern that you follow, as in printed on the cloth? I used to do them free form back in the day but that was AGES ago (like middle school/high school. apparently I was a nerd). I have a baby blanket i’ve been working on for a few years (yes, years) and i’m thinking that if/when me and Knight have kids that will be my motivation to finish it. I find it so soothing to do, though. Maybe I’ll pull it out this weekend. Expect an instagram photo if I do :) Can’t wait to see your photos of the finished projects :)
