Antique Hearts Needleroll - Week Two

Two more rows done, but I have discovered that I'm going to have to buy some sort of magnifying/light device. These old eyes are getting dim and seeing holes in the cloth, let alone the right holes is getting difficult. Somewhere in all my past moves, I have lost the beads and little metal heart that were supposed to embellish this needleroll--so stitches will have to do. I'm anxious to see how Litla Skvís is coming along. Her stitching has been an inspiration to me. Her crosses are all in the «right» direction, mine are all skewobbly--I think it is time to find some abcs and 123s on how to actually cross-stitch properly. Until next week.

  1. Hi Carolyn!
    I just updated my blog.
    I always make my stitches like this: //////// for the bottom row, and then when you cross back you go the other direction. Keep your stitches even and try not to pull on the fabric much.
    Your progress is great, can't wait to see more of it!
