I've previously shown you updates on two of my three cross stitch projects and now it's time for my third one. It's a project called 'Save the Stitches' and while it includes a bit of cross stitching it's mostly done with specialty stitches (a lot of embroidery). It's a unique blend of 131+ blackwork patterns done in 24 blocks. The picture below is what the finished piece looks like with only 19 patterns done. The picture below is actually on it's side with the 1st block appearing in the bottom left corner.....It's an amazing project!!!!! And it is an absolutely FREE pattern on the internet.
This is the first block officially finished.
In the week of working on this I managed to get the first two blocks finished. I could have continued working on it because it's so much fun....but with two other projects in my rotation (Twisted Band Sampler and Blue Dragon) I needed to put it away and give the others fair time.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!
