Cross stitch tree WIP (link to free chart)

treewip

Hello! Just like in I mentioned in the previous post, I’ve been quite busy lately and I have no time to do much crocheting or cross stitching. Not a good thing.

This is the little tree I’ve been working on for a while now, it’s still a WIP so I’m hoping to finish it up soon (before new year’s hopefully…)

I came across the chart on Pinterest but the website link on it doesn’t work any longer. Casamiainitalia.com is down until the end of January according to the message on the site. This is a picture of the finished item, from Pinterest also.

It’s coming out way bigger than I expected (I feel like I should know enough about sizing by now…). The tree alone is around 5 1/2 inches long! I used 28 ct evenweave. Since there is no colour chart available with the pattern, I’ll share the three colours I used as well: DMC 3348 as green, DMC 945 as “peach” colour (I don’t know if they are flowers or fruits so I made them as peaches) and DMC 817 for the red details.

I still have a little bit to go but hopefully, it will turn out nice one finished!

WIP: Once Upon A time Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.

Once Upon A TimeI can’t wait to finish this sampler! The details on it are adorable, and the colours are lovely as well. It’s the first time I use evenweave linen ( in Antique White by MCG Textiles) and I love it. It’s way harder to see the little squares but I think it looks better.

But I’m currently looking for another pattern to make just so I can take a break from this one. I love floral motifs so I that is probably what I’ll end up doing next.
