I’m nothing if not ambitious. This is my very first cross stitch, and did I pick something easy on a low count aida fabric? Nope. Of course I went for a slightly more complex pattern on evenweave linen (already mounted in a wooden frame). It’s certainly not perfect, but it’s how I feel about a lot of things right now.
The pattern is from Subversive Cross Stitch (I bought the book for a friend for Christmas), and the fabric/frame was in the dollar bin at Michaels. Expect more projects with these frames, because I snatched up a whole bunch of them.
