Cross Stitch Update #1

I am currently working on two cross stitch projects. The first I have been working on since August, the other I started in February this year. Below are some photos of my progress.

The Weasley Family
This is my first ever cross stitch project, and I’m really enjoying the process! Although it was a slow going to start with, I am really enjoying stitching this design (unfortunately I don’t have any progress pictures). In my opinion it’s a great pattern for learning how to cross stitch, as there is satisfaction after completing each character. I only have Charlie and Bill left to do, as well as ‘The Weasleys’ text above the family, so I’m hoping to finish this project soon. After completion, the next challenge will be removing the mystery stains that have appeared and framing the design!

 

Sherlock
I only began stitching this design in February, but I’m working to a deadline as it will be a gift for a friend. I still have a long way to go but already it’s starting to come together! The hair and coat will probably be the most challenging to stitch due to the number of colours, but I’m looking forward to the challenge. Next step – finish the face!
