cross stitch 1-welcome

Okay! Today I finally have my first cross stitch project to share.

This is a pattern that I kind of improvised. I saw something like it in a thrift store, took a picture, and made my own. I chose the colors based on another painting we have hanging in our entryway. I also framed it really quickly so pay no attention to the wrinkles; obviously I have some practice to do. And can you spot the mistake in the second E? I got careless while I was watching a movie and decided it wasn’t worth the trouble to fix it.


And here is where I hung it up. Someone is testing her boundaries in this photo, seeing if she can escape outside. :)


Later that day after I hung this up David pointed it out to me on his own with no prompting on my part and told me that he likes it. So! Success in my book.

    It took me a good three minutes to find the “mistake” in the second E. I would call it personalized, not a mistake :) I love it!
