I am happy to report that I managed to do some cross stitching yesterday, after a hiatus of about 3 weeks! 😀 So very, very happy! And to think that it nearly didn’t happen… I was occupied with jalan-jalan (sight-seeing, walks) around Kota Kinabalu with the kids on Saturday and being lazy on the Sunday morning. Jalan-jalan because I needed the exercise (having gained a few extra pounds this month) and lazy because the rain ruined my laundry plans and also because the walks made me soooo extremely tired … . Really, I am getting old….er. Too old to chase after my 4 year old son.
I spent my Sunday afternoon cross stitching this new project and it is in my 2013 Cross Stitching Activity Plan. I just adore its cuteness. So far, this is what I’ve stitched:
And this is what it should look like (more or less) in the end:
So far, it’s still easy because I’m using only 1 colour, blanc. Wait till I get to the colourful bouquet – and the dreaded backstitches! But the backstitches will not be as challenging as Tatty Teddy. Nearly gave up on it, really. Speaking of which, I have not yet posted Tatty Teddy’s final looks – framed. Need to take a nice pic of it at its new home.
So, how was your weekend?
Have a nice day, everyone!
