Today I thought I would take a look at my next cross stitch project – have already got the fabric and threads needed so want to start it as soon as I finish my crochet project (hopefully wont be too long and I can show you a photo 🙂 )
Love the design of the project – last year I was into oriental style designs but now I seem to be looking more at african ones.
This one is 250 x 157 stitches and will measure 45 x 28cm. EEEKKK! Surprisingly though it only uses 40 different threads (which was a lot less than I thought).
Am slightly scared at the look of the chart when put together :S
Have never done a project this large before – not entirely sure how I will even start to tackle it!
Oh well, nothing like a challenge to keep the brain going (she says :S)
Will definitely post photos of this project as I think it will be good to actually see a timeline of progress – otherwise it could be quite disheartening when you think you aren’t getting anywhere with it!
Anyway, must dash, have a crochet project itching to be finished!
