My Very First Cross Stitch Project Ever was for my junior high home ec class (I believe I got an A on this). I have no idea where the pattern came from, or who the designer is. My mother, bless her, still has this on her wall.
My latest finish is from the May/June 2011 edition of Just Cross Stitch magazine. It is the May installment of the Fresh Threads Medley series. I did not use the Weeks Dye Works wool felt that was called for in the pattern. I used DMC variegated floss to fill in the fish and DMC Color Variations to fill in the flower centers. I like how the fish turned out stripey. :)
What the hey, here's my latest start, too. This is part one of the Tree of Stitches SAL at TheStitchSpecialists Yahoo group. This part is straight up cross stitch, so I finished it pretty quick. It is Weeks Dye Works 'Rust', stitched 2 over 2 on 28 ct white Monaco. (Although this is the loosest weave Monaco I've ever seen)
Now, let's see if I can keep up the posting in a timely manner thing.
