#crossstich

I found three things from my wishlist at the Book Market, including a cross stitch collection I‘ve been searching for for 12 years! It has an unfortunate title but many lovely charts. An older lady was going to buy it, but she very kindly let me have it instead when we chatted about how long I‘d been looking for it.

I‘m glad to have more by Sara Douglass and Kate Elliott, too, plus a cool-looking old Penguin chosen at random.

UwannaPublishme Glad you finally found your book! That‘s a long wait. 😅 2w
xicanti @UwannaPublishme I originally took it out from the library and made one of the book‘s three large, related pieces, but they discarded it while I was overseas and I never got to make the other two. I‘m glad I finally get to have the full set! 2w

Audio and cross stitch since I‘m stuck awake all night on account of the fireworks. 😤

The.Great.Catsby That looks beautiful!!! Wow! So well done. Is that a little corgi pin?! How cute! 3mo
Gnora @The.Great.Catsby Thank you so much! The corgi pin has the pin part cut off and a magnet attached so I can use it to hold my needle in place when I need to stop. It's my stitching buddy. :) 3mo

Pigpen_Reads I'm interested in trying cross stitch. Any tips or advice for a newbie? 😊 5mo
LiseWorks @Pigpen_Reads Bookmarks are easy. They those first. 5mo
Pigpen_Reads @LiseWorks Where would be the best place to buy the supplies? Is there like a kit I can look for? 5mo
LiseWorks @Pigpen_Reads I bought some on Amazon, but Walmart has some too! 5mo
Pigpen_Reads @LiseWorks Thanks! I'll check out both places :) 5mo
CrowCAH That‘s a super cute pattern! 📚 I don‘t think I‘ll be able to join the zoom, since that will be around my dinner time with the family. Happy stitching! 5mo
wanderinglynn @Pigpen_Reads I buy a lot of supplies from https://www.everythingcrossstitch.com. Michaels and other craft stores have some too. 5mo
Pigpen_Reads @wanderinglynn Thank you! Gonna check out the link now :) 5mo
vlwelser Leila any chance this comes in a non cat version? You know, for those of us whose idea of a pet is a Roomba. 😂 5mo
Chrissyreadit I‘m going to check out a super easy kit via link @wanderinglynn shared. I have never done just cross stitch or counted cross stitch before. 5mo
ErinSueMreads I'm sitting this month out I don't have the patience for crossstitch 😂😂😂 5mo
Librarybelle I think I‘m going to try and join! I love cross stitching and have not taken an opportunity to work on a project for some time. This may just be the right push I need. 5mo
vlwelser @Catsandbooks I was joking up there ?. I can "fix" it. It just needs extra books instead of the cat. 5mo
wanderinglynn @Pigpen_Reads @Chrissyreadit if you‘re new to cross stitch, I might recommend a stamped (or “no count”) kit. The image is stamped on the adia cloth, so you just follow the colors and don‘t have to count. 5mo
vlwelser I'm signed up. But I'm probably going to work on my epic project that I already have started. 5mo
Catsandbooks @Pigpen_Reads Like others said any craft store should have beginner kits. If you want to make this pattern. The directions as well as a list of supplies are provided with the pattern download. 5mo
Catsandbooks @CrowCAH no problem! You can still make the pattern on your own if you want. I think I'm actually going to start it before the zoom event anyway! 5mo
Catsandbooks @vlwelser 😂😂 you can totally replace the cat with something else. Books, a plant, a mug, whatever. I make up my own rules anyway and will probably do it in different colors. But yes you do have that epic project! Can't wait to see the progress! 5mo
Catsandbooks @Librarybelle awesome! Happy you're joining! ☺️ 5mo
Catsandbooks @wanderinglynn @LiseWorks thanks for the tips and resources! 🙌🏼 5mo
Catsandbooks @Chrissyreadit fantastic! Once you learn the basic stitch you'll be flying in no time! 5mo
Catsandbooks @ErinSueMreads totally understand! As always feel free to show off any other crafty project you're working on! 😄 5mo
vlwelser I like the idea of doing it in different colors. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. 5mo
Texreader I can‘t do that kind of cross-stitch sadly because it‘s too small for my eyes. I‘ll bring my embroidery to the event. 5mo
Catsandbooks @Texreader Yay, I would love to see your embroidery! 5mo
rockpools I fell down a VERY lovely (expensive!) Etsy crafty rabbit hole there! I can‘t join you ‘live‘, but I‘ve just invested (!) in a beautiful blackwork kit for my next project (never tried that before). And I‘m going to try and finish my current project before you meet. Thanks for the encouragement 😊 5mo
Catsandbooks @rockpools haha that's awesome! I've been wanting to try black fabric, so I'm excited to see what you make! I'd love to see what you purchased too! 5mo
rockpools @Catsandbooks It‘s going to be WAY too big and WAY too complicated and take me hundreds of years to finish - but isn‘t it beautiful? https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/1024676889/blackwork-paint-by-numbers-sunset-kit... 5mo
rockpools I think blackwork is like cross stitch but you make little patterns with the stitches, rather than crosses. 5mo
Catsandbooks @rockpools I thought it was black fabric 🤦🏼‍♀️😂 I've never heard or seen blackwork before. But after seeing that design I wanna try it!!! So beautiful!!! 😍 I'm excited to see your progress on it! I have a feeling I'll be going down a rabbit hole of this new discovery shortly lol 5mo
rockpools @Catsandbooks Sorry! 😘 5mo
Lauredhel I can‘t cross stitch… I‘ve tried! Holding the tiny needle doesn‘t work for my hands. But I‘ll keep posting my crochet work to the hashtag :) 5mo
Catsandbooks @Lauredhel I love seeing your crochet work! 5mo
Lauredhel @Catsandbooks thanks! I JUST finished my first full coat - designed it myself! 5mo
Catsandbooks @Lauredhel That's so awesome! Congrats!!!🎉 💕 5mo
