I have really levelled up my stitching speed...the kitten is already complete!
He is so cute x3
He was just such a joy to stitch! He reminds me of my dead kitty Lilly (may she rest in kitty heaven)...she was white and black but they have the exact same kissy-mouth :)
I have decided to further level-up my stitching my doing some of the 'Welcome to' kits from the Cross Stitch Guild. I decided to go for 'Welcome to Counted Thread'. The instructions are a load of rubbish - if I didn't have the Cross Stitcher's Bible (which includes this chart and full instructions) I would've been a bit lost. This is my first time stitching on linen...it's ok, no great difficulty and no great revolution.
Here's where I'm up to so far...
I love rhodes stitch! (the blue and red squares) I hate queens stitch! (purple mess). I need to do some more queens stitch *grrr* and then a four-sided stitch border.
I'm getting very impatient waiting for my new threads to arrive. I have lots of other things I can be doing/finishing..but I really want my new threads D:
