Cross Stitch

Look what I've dug out from the loft - I thought I had got a lot further - and I realised I started it over 12 years ago!!!!!!!! when I started it I didn't even need glasses.

scrappy squares

I have already prepared the paper templates and the cut the white strips that are the common theme. The white is only an inch wide - meaning a 1/2 inch strip when sewn. The final strippy squares are 8 inches. I sew a couple of squares when I just fancy a bit of sewing ... but nothing too difficult - I have 8 so far, not including this pillow I made earlier

top assembled

The top is square with additional 8 inch borders - covers the top of a double bed. Not sure how whether to have a plain solid black back or have a few colour blocks --and now how to quilt.......?

so far

In progress - the fabric is chosen and i think this is the order - flowing from red to violet and back - laid on a black sheet for effect -


I think I will stick with the black idea

I didn't realize how many fabrics I had in my stash... there are 52 separate fabrics here ....and I could have substitutes (over and over!!)
