I got some stitching done and while it doesn’t look like that much to me, when compared to the other picture I see how far I’ve gotten. When you look at it closely you can see the first footprint and on the top left it’s supposed to be a sea shell. There is some outlining work that needs to be done on it so I think it’ll look better once that is done.
I took another picture from farther away so that you can see how it looks compared to how much of the fabric it’s on (It’s as far left as it’s going to be. Those are the farthest stitches to that side, my fabric is a bit bigger than necessary.) and I must admit, it looks quite a bit better from far away. You can see how it looks like it’s shaded in because of the different colors that were used. I like this picture of it. 😀
But, as you can tell I have quite a bit more to do. I think that this is only the bottom half or so of the fabric so I still have the right side and then the top sides of the cross to do. I’m enjoying doing it though and hoping I can keep it hidden for a while longer. Wish me luck!!
*I forgot to mention, this has a 28 count fabric with it and I was supposed to stitch over 2 on it. I thought to myself “Why do that when I can save the 28 and use a 14 instead and stich over 1?” But, I didn’t have a 14 on hand that would fit the pattern so I am using an 18 count and the finished size should just about fit into an 8×10 frame. I’m hoping that it still looks good. I’ve only stitched on 14 count before so stitching on 18 is a bit of a challenge for my eyes. (Plus now I think I need a new Rx for my reading glasses. What perfect timing, huh?)
