Recently, I made a few cross stitch projects for my swap partners.
I made this little Dorothy. The design in by Brooke's Books Publishing. I love the design, especially the intricate way the shades of blue simulated plaid. I hope to complete the whole Oz series for myself.
I think my favorite is the silver shoes. I ended up adding some more backstitching because I used white aida that blended with the sleeves and apron.
For the Box of Sunshine swap, I stitched Funshine Bear because we both love 80's cartoons and a Mill Hill Sun ornament.
This was my first attempt at beadwork. I had to customize the pattern because I struggled with the bead colors which makes it one of a kind.
