Adventures in Cross Stitch

Thursday, March 26, 2020
In this time of stay at home orders, I decided to pick up cross stitch after my sister had started her own, and I learned that my mom is starting to knit.

I started doing a twitter thread as I did it as a way to track my progress/vent about how messed up it is.

Here's the pattern and my finished project:

My first line is totally messed up and horrendous. I obviously realized that the font the pattern wants is far about my skill level so. I really like the font style I ended up creating. Hopefully I improve my skill so I can do the more complicated patterns.

All in all, it was a fun craft to do, even when I got frustrated messing up a stitch. I used to do a lot of crafts as a kid, usually because that's what kids do. I can't draw for shit, so doing something artistic in any way that I enjoy is always a nice discovery for me.

I already have a second kit to start stitching, and hopefully the end result is much better.
