Country Cottage Needleworks, Cross Stitch

Cross Stitch VIII

Hello. How’s the weather in your hood? Today is a break from the warm weather with grey skies, a good breeze, and mid-60’s.

Stitching has been my go-to after a bit of knitting each day:

I had fun making the trees and the roof of the house. I want to finish the white details of the house before I start using those fun colors to fill in the space.

I’ve been using my lap hoop and magnifying craft light to help with this 18-count Aida cloth.

Well, my alarm has gone off. Off to prep the meal of the day; our crew is having the last of the spuds along with boiled, frozen veggies + we’ll be trying brown rice quinoa today. Thank you for poppin in. TTYS.

  1. I was wondering what kind of embroidery stand to get. My hands do.get tired after a while.of holding the hoop. I like the fact yours is made in the USA too. Love your light too. I have a daylight lamp with a magnifying glass in it. Only issue I have is it gets a bit warm sitting under it in the summertime. Your house is pretty but will be even prettier when the colors are added.

  2. I love your sweet cross stitch, Stef! I’ve been working on 18ct fabric lately, and I don’t know what possessed me to order some 25 count recently (thinking I’m going to work it 1 over 1). I sit here waiting for it to arrive and I wonder if I’ll be able to manage it. Sigh.

      1. No, I’ve ordered some hardanger and I think some aida. While I love the look of linen, I’m pretty intimidated to try it. I have a nice bright light for the work I’m doing. I couldn’t do cross stitch at this point without it.
