Stag bag complete!

Today I finished my stag tote bag from What Delilah Did ^^
Most of the stitching was completed yesterday and I finished of the stag this afternoon.

I love it! It's such a good size too - big enough to carry all my crap around with me ^^;
At first, I was a little frustrated stitching this. One of my favourite things about cross stitch is how methodical it is...all that counting and everything looking nice, neat and even. This being a stamped design, with no discernible holes to aim was a little stressful ^^; But once I realised that I could completely switch off and just let my hands do the work....I really enjoyed it! And I quite like how uneven and rustic my stitches look, I think it adds to the overall look.

I haven't decided what to stitch next. I have so much to choose from....and naturally, what I feel like stitching, I don't have :) isn't that always the way?


  1. It's lovely, well done!
    Happy weekend (:

  2. You'd never know you had no holes to aim at. This looks very good.

  3. Very pretty little bag, well done!
