Hi, everybody! I've been getting more serious about cross-stitching and I've decided to finally join the blogosphere (which is a word I can't take seriously, but it's fun to use)! I started cross-stitching 6 or 7 years ago, I think, but I had one project that I worked on intermittently for a long time. In grad school, some friends and I decided to take up stitching again, and I finally completed that project (sorry, no pics) and a new one soon after it:
After I finished the peacock, I bought my first BIG project, which I'm on the verge of finishing! It's taken me nearly two years, but it's been amazing watching it go from this:
I just have the backstitching and outlining left! It has a lot of couching, which I reeeeeeeally hate (I keep getting tangled trying to work with two threaded needles), but now that I'm doing more of the regular backstitching it's going much quicker.
I feel like I'm finally joining the ranks of the Super Serious Stitchers now that I've gotten my first scroll frame! I recently bought some Lokscroll frames on eBay and my Ergo stand arrived a few days ago! I'm also about to try out stitching on evenweave for the first time (I've only ever used aida before) so I can figure out what I want to stitch my next BAP on.
I'm also still trying to figure out how I want this blog set up, so bear with me as I play around with things!
