I am part way through the super-cool cross stitch pattern by LoungeKat which is featured in the latest issue of Mixtape. I have just finished the lettering and am now trying to figure out the best way to tackle all of the the outer detail.
I haven't done any cross stitching in forever as I hadn't really been inspired by any patterns but when I saw this one I just had to do it. I love its uniqueness and quirkiness- you don't see many cross stitch charts with skulls in them!
I am now on the hunt to find other cool patterns. It would be great if there were more cross stitch patterns like the ones that Sublime Stitching have for embroidery... which brings me to my new endeavour- learning embroidery! I have totally fallen in love with the gorgeous designs on the site, especially those from the Artist Series. I have also swiped a Sublime Stitching book from Sarah so i'm pretty well set! I've never really embroidered anything before as i've always thought it was too hard but now that i've seen all the cool designs out there I can't resist giving it a go!
If anyone has any pics on their blog of any projects they've embroidered or cross stitched i'd love to have a peek!
