Cross Stitch Detour

I took a break from the quilting to try out a new craft.

I enjoy cross stitch, but have only done counted.  I found a “vintage” stamped cross stitch kit on ebay that had a cooking theme and thought it would be cute to do and hang in the kitchen.

I like the east of the stamped cross stitch, I don’t have to guess where the stitches go, but I don’t like that some of the stamping shows through the floss.  The perfectionist in me is going to want to go back over all the stitches if I have enough floss left over.

I made up a weekly schedule for myself and have two days set aside for needlework, and six projects.  I’m hoping that at least three of them can be done by the end of the year!
