Heh heh,

Made this one for myself. Because.


It was so difficult stitching teeny tiny itty bitty X's on this very tight aida. I almost got a bigger size but couldn't let it beat me.


I had to start over 4 times but I'm happy I didn't waste the fabric from this botched mandala. That terrible thing was the start of all the swearing to begin with...but not the end... ha!

Oh, that's brilliant! I have a niece who will only cross-stitch on that ridiculously fine canvas. I think it's insane, myself.

What aida count did you use?  Regardless, I love that you channeled that mandala-gone-wrong into something for yourself (I don't know about you, but I find it hard to make something for myself).  And that yellow blanket stitch (?) against the black is perfect!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
