Cross stitch diary, day 5


I did some more stitches on the head today; adding another shade of brown to the ear and some lighter brown as well. I hope I will finish the head tomorrow.

This design has white parts, but no white threads. When there is white, you are supposed to leave it unstitched. That’s how it is with the ring around the eye too, and part of the nose.

Once again it’s late, and I’m tired, so I will turn off the lamp and we’ll see what I will do to this picture tomorrow. 🙂

Cross stitch diary, day 3


Today I added some more of the dark brown. I also stitched some of the lighter browns. 🙂

There will be a lot of browns the coming days. But later I will start adding blues, greens and yellows too. May be even a splash of blue tomorrow! We’ll see!

Now it’s almost midnight, so I need to sleep. I like cross stitching while watching something on TV. Tonight I watched a couple of episodes of Numb3rs on DVD!


Cross stitch diary, day 1


Well, here is how far I came today with the cross stitching of the new ‘mystery’ project. I am not going to tell you what picture I am stitching. But I think the brand/company that made it is called Permin.

You’ll see in a few days what the brown things are going to be. 🙂

I finished the picture from the earlier post in the afternoon, so I didn’t have much time to work on this one.

And as I wrote earlier today, the kitten makes it more difficult to be creative. She likes to sabotage my stitching by lying on the pattern paper and grabbing the threads with her paws… So most of the time I will have to cross stitch when she is sleeping.

I started with the lightest brown, then I made the middle brown and finally I started on the darker brown.

We’ll see how far I get tomorrow! Now it’s late, 11 pm, and I need to get ready for bed.
