Cross Stitch progress
What I thought was a pin cushion is actually an embroidery hoop which is the picture I am working on at the moment. I also started to back stitch the first skein of thread.
What looks to be a grubby mark, top left is actually on my phone camera lens not on the cross stitch...and I'll be darned if I can get it off !
It's a tiny needle and a small aida count, the only saving grace is that it's whole stitches !
I don't anticipate getting very far on a weekly basis with this one, to be honest I am not enjoying it one bit, I am not sure if I am off cross stitch or just fed up with a tiny needle and not getting very far... unlike sewing and knitting where I seem to make progress quickly cross stitch is very slow going.
