1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to fluff up my cross-stitch, for lack of better words on: April 26, 2011 06:57:34 PM
if only everyone's eyes were as forgiving as my crappy camera to the flaws. i'm using 3 strands on 14 pt aida cloth, as two strands left too many white patches and i'd like this to look more solid. in retrospect i should have just done needlepoint, that would have saved me half the stitches. I'll surely be posting a finished product, as i'm damned proud of this thing so far. it's MASSIVE.

thank you for your encouragement! i've just taken up embroidery. i made a tiny sampler when I was in Brownies about 20 years ago, now am absolutely loving having something to do with my hands all the time, that is neither drinking nor smoking.

ahh, this is going to be fun. the answer to every question itself asks so many more questions i don't really have the answer to. photo forthcoming; i've already put thousands and thousands of stitches into this thing, and i ain't about to take any of them out. though uneven, the unevenness is itself kind of evenly spread out over the work. i think I will try ironing it when it's finished.

i don't know why they're sideways --- they were right-side up when i uploaded them.
