A NEW ONE

 

Although I haven't yet framed the last crosstitch I started a new one. This is another small patchwork themed one that I bought online .




I am really enjoying combining my love of patchwork with crosstitch. While researching framing techniques I came across a product called 'sticky board' which is an acid free board to mount the embroidery or crosstitch onto before putting it in the frame. Has anyone used this? I was just going to cut a bit of cardboard to size but the sticky board demos looked interesting.


My crocheted shawl is growing and I am considering making a scarf with the same yarn next.



The days are getting cooler so I love crocheting with the shawl draping on my lap.


Happy crafting.
