Home 2 ~ First Update

Remember about DMC Cross-stitch Competition?
Well, you can back track to my previous post here.
 
I decided to open both of the charts :)
I wanted to do HOME 1 design actually...
BUT
when I saw the chart, there was stitching with 2 strands, 1 strand
AND
FRENCH KNOTS.
Oppsiee.. I am not good in French knots.
 
Sooo...
I opted to HOME 2 design.. :P
 
Well, Home 2 has stitching with 2 strands, I strand and half stitch..
not so challenging huh???
but it's ok for me.

Chart, threads, 2 needles + 14ct aida fabric in a set
 
 This is my progress so far :)

As at 5th July 2013

Not much of a progress. Can't really see the tea cup yet, only a handle.
I was nervous and shaking to stitch..hehe.
As this is to submit for a competition, your mind keep telling
you to stitch properly and tidy. I feel like a beginner...lol.


Till the next update,
Fara

  2. What lovely charts to stitch :)
    Can't wait to see more....

    I was going to send you an email but I don't have your email address.... I have received the lovely package you sent me for the MS Exchange. I love the little bag and all those goodies :) Thank you - it was so lovely to have a gorgeous package waiting for me on a cold, wet and dreary winter's day like today :)
