Make The Days Count – Cross Stitch Pattern

I knew this would be a quickie and it was!

Bought it last weekend and did a few sections each evening.

Here is the link to the pattern if you’re interested in having a go yourself! (From an Etsy shop called Stitchrovia)

This was the first time I have ever used black Aida fabric and I gotta say, not a fan! The result of the colours I chose (I didn’t stick to the exact ones from the pattern) and the contrast between them and the fabric looks good, I think.

But the fabric itself was really difficult to use and my stitching ended up looking horrible! The fabric was stiffer than usual, maybe because it’s been dyed black? I don’t know, it was really hard to use, especially to see where the needle needed to go – I did make sure to have a white piece of paper underneath to help, but I found my fat sauasage fingers blocked the white and made a shadow so it was still hard to see!

I still have more of the fabric to use up! Eek!

Here is the finished piece, not sure where to put it as of yet, maybe I’l just pin it to a pin board?!

Don’t count the days – make the days count!

I have one more cross stitch pattern to go, but a much bigger one.

I’m loving using up my stash – all I’ve paid for so far are the digital patterns. So, a lot of the colours might be the same, but that’s called a cohesive and consistent colour palette, right?!!
