A couple of weeks ago while writing about my bedroom cleaning project , I mentioned discovering a some unfinished projects I had totally forgotten about. This week I decided I needed to get at least one of them done. This one to be exact:
I picked this stitchery project up over a year ago on a quilting shop hop with my sister in law. I used to do a lot of cross stitching, and I loved how this kit incorporated stitching and painting.
I decided to make the larger of the two projects:
Guess I should have known better and started smaller, but I just loved the full range of people and animals that are in this one.
I went and bought my supplies, which included this disappearing ink pen.
I then traced the pattern onto the material. This was kind of a pain because I have never been able to let myself spend the money on a light box. I have really wanted one a couple of times, but have alway wondered if I would actually use it enough to justify the expense. So for this project I waited for a sunny day and then taped the pattern and material on a window. This turned out to be a bigger project than I had expected.
