cross stitch fever

cross stitch fever

It's the hottest time of the year around here and that usually means my knitting mojo takes a nosedive. But my cross stitching mojo is in high gear! I'm even participating in a challenge this month on Instagram... the #commonthreadedstitcher . I almost never participate in things like this, since work usually takes most of my time. But I just really wanted to join in this time. 

I've been working on several cross stitch projects, but most of them are secret (future designs). Except this lovely little vase of irises by Blackbird Designs called Summer Iris.

I modified the colors a bit - something I almost always do. Honestly, it's probably been years and years since I stitched something with all the called for colors. 

It's stitched on 32 count Buttercream from Lakeside Linens. My conversion is as follows:

Called for > My choice

  • WDW Dove > GAST Cottage Blue
  • WDW Fawn > WDW Fawn
  • WDW Cappuccino > GAST Bluebell
  • WDW Rum Raisin > GAST Dungarees
  • GA Grecian Gold > GA Grecian Gold
I should have a couple of new things to show you towards the end of the month! And I'm really going to try and keep up with the challenge this month:)
