Week 7 of the Cross Stitch Project

What with one thing and another, this week’s stitching went incredibly slowly. I’ve been so busy I’ve barely been able to hear myself think so I did what I could when I could. It didn’t help that I picked a piece that was extremely shaded either. I’m not cut out for this nonsense anymore.

Since I barely finished my square on Wednesday night, I obviously missed my post last Monday but since I’ve been in North Carolina since Thursday I didn’t have anything new to post today anyway. So!

Amanda’s square is apparently part of a pattern that she had of a gazebo and I have to say, I’d love to see the entire thing. Even after knowing her all this time I still have no idea how she does this so fast. Dark magic perhaps?

This is the pattern I (possibly unwisely) chose. It looks pretty now but I was tearing my hair out over it last week. For one thing, our kitchen light went out and it was hard to differentiate the tones. For another, I had to do the whole “one stitch at a time” nonsense for several colors. To top it off, this was my second larger square so it took longer anyway.

There’s only one piece left for me, the long border-like piece at the top, and my work will be done. Amanda has one more small square and her border piece. Then it’ll be done and I can roll it up and completely forget to frame it. Hooray!
