So I am going to stitch up my new cross stitch/tapestry design (refer yeasterday's post).
Here are all the bits I have gathered up to get started....
Also one of my other resolutions is to use the craft supplies I already have and not purchase too many more.
So I fossicked (spelling?) around and came up with three options...10 count tapestry canvas, 18 count waste canvas or 28 count evenweave. I like working with tapestry canvas but the design would be enormous and who can even see the holes in 28 count evenweave so the waste canvas option it is.
I am going to stitch it onto a blank white tea towel and either keep it as a tea towel (one I will never us of course!) or stretch it over a canvas. I would probably guess it will be the latter as I would have to get the design perfectly centred and straight to look good on the tea towel and I am too impatient to start stitching to bother with lining it up exactly.
I am going to provide a weekly photo and update probably on a Monday morning (when I am down to one child!) and you can see how fast I am progressing. This way I might see the project to the end and not get distracted by too many new ones.
I would be really intersted to know how many half finished craft projects you have lurking in your cupboards - is it just me or is it a common affliction? Do tell!!!
