Week 3 of the Cross Stitch Project

More cross stitching fun with my friend Amanda! We were totally flying through the thread this week and we ended up making it through four squares.

After I ended the last week with the strawberry, Amanda drew on her true nature and made a martini. I followed up with a little garden scene, which included a watering can that doesn’t really look like a watering can. It’s hard working tiny.

Unlike me, Amanda likes using metallic thread so she got ambitious and finished her second large square with an ocean sunset surrounded by metallic blue thread that this picture doesn’t do justice. I got it back on Saturday and decided to get ambitious myself…with an apple.

Honestly, my intent was to do a little budgie but for some reason I ended up doing an apple. To try and jazz it up, I put a background on it and now it looks like some really agrarian country’s flag. Tomorrow I’ll return the piece to Amanda and probably get it back Wednesday morning. This time I’m definitely doing the budgie. Or maybe a wine bottle.
