I've had everything to stitch up Lizzie Kate's "My To Do List" for almost a year, but crafting (especially stitching) fell by the wayside for a while. I finally got the stitching bug back, and I'm really happy about it. This is going to be a birthday present for my mom. I bought a barn wood frame for it, but I haven't had a chance to frame it yet.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

What a great idea to stitch up a list. The lettering is super fun!

I have a soft spot in my heart for samplers. This one is beautiful. It does not look counted cross stitch, as it appears to be on linen? Please share how you transferred the pattern? I have not been doing as much hand stitching as I would like to, either. But this is just wonderful. I love all the little quilty 'do dads' that are part of the pattern. And I love your thread color choices.

stillatthetop - Thanks! It's counted cross stitch on linen. I just stitched it like I would on Aida except stitching over two threads. It definitely makes the counting a little harder in the gaps, but I love the way cross stitch looks on evenweave and linen. There are a few mistakes/changes from the pattern, but they aren't really noticeable.  Wink

You are welcome. I have never done counted cross stitch on evenweave/linen. I have always traced a pattern on them. And then worked from that. I have several projects in the works right now, and my back is totally out at the moment..chiropractor visit time  Angry But I would like to make some Christmas ornaments for little token gifts for some friends and family. I think I will find a pattern and try your method for smaller projects to learn how. I love the look of the evenweave, too. I will have to check my stash. I think I have a fabric that will work perfect for this. Burlap also comes to mind. I also have the Aida in several hole sizes. You have inspired me to do cross stitch again  Grin Yours is beautiful. Please post it on my thread?

Affirmations. It belongs there, I think. It is wonderful. I hope you have a hoopla wall. If not, I could do a private trade and make you your first one. I am working on building one myself. I have done several private trades. Right now they are on my bul
