I have spent the last three weeks working on Winter Sampler. This is what it looks like now:
I have been listening to the #offthegridfridayparty while I stitched tonight. I finished another diagonal and started another one. I have decided that it is time to work on something else. Taking it out of my frame makes me realize how much I have stitched and I feel like things are really starting to come together now. #crossstitch #crossstitchersofinstagram #xstitch #flosstube #sandyorton #koolerdesignstudio #wintersampler #malestitcher #malecrossstitcher
It has felt good to spend so much time on this piece. I feel like I have accomplished quite a bit. A large portion of the skating scene has appeared. Also, the picture of the snowman is almost finished. Finally, the clock with the “Happy New-Year” ribbon is complete. I am starting to work on the “Winter” arch that covers the skating scene, which makes me feel like I am starting a new section of the design.
As an added bonus, I have hit the upper corner. That means that the diagonals are starting to shrink. This is a welcome development because I feel like I have made it over the hump and things are starting to go downhill. I look forward to working on this piece more.
I have decided to take a little break from it, though. There is a lot of white in this piece and white is not my favorite color to stitch. I need to recharge with something else for a time.
