Ok, so this is my first ever cross stitch project. I'm so excited to be posting this!
I was inspired, months ago now, while reading a friend's blog, The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive
. When I read that line I knew I had to do something with it, and after a lot of trial and error I finally came up with this.
Like I said, this was my first ever cross stitch, and I know it's not perfect. I think my stitching got better as I went on, and I learned that leaving your work in a hoop really isn't a good idea!
I used 14 count aida with 2 strands of floss for the text, and 3 strands for the pictures. I read somewhere that 2 strands was best for 14 count, but I thought it looked a bit thin. What would you recommend?
I used the Crosstitch.com caption maker
for the text, and the pictures were from random images I found on google and charted.
Thanks for looking, please let me know what you think.
I'm so addicted to cross stitch now!
