I wanted to share my "Guardian Angel" the first face in Joan Elliott's (facebook group) Mystery SAL. The skin is stitched one over one on 28ct evenweave. One over one stitching took longer but it was well worth the time. Of course now all the other faces will have to be stitched one over one.
There are beads to be added in the empty spaces at the end. I love this one.
I am a member of several facebook stitching groups and the group that has the SWAT (stitch week -a-thon) several times a year decided that maybe cross stitchers should have an annual World Cross Stitch Day it is the 8th of August. Hopefully this will help preserve the art of cross stitching and show the designers that we love what they do. If you are interested and have a facebook account go to the WCSD page www.facebook.com/worldcrossstitchday and "like" the page. Join in the fun of stitching with other people all around the world. Now back to making those wonderful little xxs. Thank you all for stopping by.
