Surprise! Another cross stitch update

Monday, May 02, 2016

Apologies for inundating the blog with cross stitching photos but I'm super into it, I haven't had a hobby I've loved this much for a really long time. Also please ignore my dusty as hell windowsill, clearly didn't think to give it a clean before I took this photo.

When I finished my beach hut, I bought some Aida cloth and more thread from Boyes (incredible shop for sewing bits) and started free-handing my name. Picked some cute pastel shades to do the lettering in - lilac, green, yellow, and a peachy red - and then did a couple of flowers around the edges. I then finished it off with some fruit, because why not? I did a pineapple, a bunch of grapes, an orange, a strawberry, and an apple. Kind of impressed with myself that I didn't need a template for this. I might be a bit of a natural. 😉

If anyone has any cross-stitch tips, advice, templates, or guides they want to throw my way, feel free to drop me a comment below.

P.S. There won't be an 'inspiring things' post today, my apologies. I haven't had a very inspiring week. It will be back on the 9th of May!
