Week 2 of the Cross Stitch Project

The sampler I’m doing with my friend is going well! I finished my square last weekend and gave it back to her on Monday. This time it was a little duck with a wreath. The bow is hard to see against the purple so I’ve learned an important lesson for next time.

Amanda is a ridiculously fast cross stitcher and I gave it back on Monday then picked it up on Tuesday with an absolutely gorgeous Art Deco motif. It then took me three days to finish my next square, a watermelon slice on gingham. I’m a little disappointed in the gingham because it seems too subtle but looking at it from a distance makes a difference. Another lesson learned.

This sampler has been a lot of fun so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing what she does next. I’ll keep you updated!
