* failed cross stitch

Posted on October 26th, 2003 by maitreya. Filed under Cross Stitch/Embroidery.


A failed cross stitch is even worse than the failed scarf since I consider myself a pretty good cross-stitcher. This was from a Drawn Thread freebie, the pumpkin keeper. I used a little bouquet garni bag for it. I got a whole bag of these a while ago for like a dollar or something, and they’re perfect for cross stitch. Except that they’re a pretty high thread count, the thread is thin, and I managed to lose my place so the pattern turned out all lopsided. Also, I should’ve used 1 strand of floss instead of 2. It really turned out bad (those are supposed to be leaves around the pumpkin). I think it will become giftwrap for a hopefully better present for some unsuspecting friend or relative.
