Killer Cross-Stitch

I need another hobby like I need less hours in the day. There are so many rabbit holes on the web and a good place to get lost is in a new Facebook group. A friend of the internet mentioned The Witchy Stitcher. I think I favorited just about every pattern in her shop. Her group is great too, so many helpful individuals if you are just starting out or if you just want to share a finished project that you're proud of.


I have had a collection of embroidery floss and patterns that my mom gave a long time ago. I've done small projects here and there, but never committed to anything that would amount to an actual project. Before my recent trip to Colorado, I got the bright idea to start a project to gift my sister (two days before her birthday). Needless to say, it was little late. Here is a little time lapse video of me working on it:




Sometimes is nice to have something to do in the car, at a soccer game, or having coffee with a friend when you can't be at your machine.


Here is the finished project

A couple more shops that have really cute patterns and notions found here:

- Oh My Stitches (amazing customer service, I can't wait to work on the patterns I purchased from her)

- The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

- Stitchrovia

- Stitchingland

- Find Free Patterns and other stuff at DMC Needle Craft Supplies


Here are a few of my favorite notions when stitching:
