Cross stitch ... life ... art

November 28th, 2009

I’ve been intending to post pictures of the alphabet since I finished U, but now I’ve also finished V and am well into W.


S was a monster with all that solid area but the sort of Navaho-y decorations are nice, I think. I like the decoration around T too.


U was really time-consuming but I like it a lot. Very Art Deco. V was one of those letters where I wasn’t satisfied with the chart. It’s supposed to be symmetric but the squares at the bottom aren’t, even though I made the solid square taller to match the cut-out square. I think I need to make it 2 or 3 stitches wider.

I was hoping I could finish this by the end of the year but with 5 1/2 letters and decorations left to do it doesn’t seem even remotely possible, especially since I have not managed to stitch at all this week (well, maybe an hour). I had this image of stitching all through the Thanksgiving weekend which has totally not happened. I usually get at least an hour of stitching while I watch the news, but I haven’t seen any news this week.

    This looks amazing!!!! I didn’t get the stitching time over Turkey Weekend that I was expecting to, either – the weather was too nice here!
