Do you love to stitch in one color? Working with too many colors that too in cross stitch takes soo much time to finish one piece. The samplers worked in a single (mostly red and blue) colors inspires me to take up a cross stitch project with one color. And to my surprise I got to know about the blog gazette94. It has got soooooooooo many patterns from small to big that works up quickly with single or few colors. I have bookmarked some heart patterns and finally I have stitched one and made into a small wall piece.
Then I have padded it with a cardstock and worked blanket stitch around it. Then worked single crochet stitch around and then made a simple scalloped border around, Then paste it in a corrugated handmade paper using a double sided tape and now the wall hanging is ready. I didn't hung it Just I sticked it to the wall with double sided tape. I like it very much. Planning to make more pieces like this,
Also, This is how my granny stitch blanket looks now. Green shades, blue shades, purples and now pinks are in action. I have 7 more colors to finish the first set and then again I will start with colors from the beginning without changing the order. So no confusion in selecting and placement of colors.
That's all for now. Will come up another embroidery finish soon. So keep watching this space. Bye.
