So it’s been Arctic quiet on here lately and I apologies for the silence .. It’s been a busy time at the crosstitchery household, as I’ve been working my tail off on this latest commission.
My previous commission was for the Harry Potter Sampler cross stitch which you can see here.
This commission was such a hit that I received another 2 orders for the same pattern before we left for Japan. This patterns takes a long while to stitch – working full time, maintaining a household and having a social life impacts on my time to stitch, but I try and fit in at least an hour every day to gradually chip away at it.
I’m happy to say I’ve nearly finished the first portion of this commission, here’s a progress photo.
The flags are by far the hardest part of this commission. There’s so many stitches in each one that it usually takes me like 5 hours just to complete one!
I’ll be turning this completion in a cushion also, with wood grain fabric to create the cushion as this commission is for a new baby who has a forest theme nursery.
The second part to this commission is another Harry Potter cross stitch which we will be framing. It’s based on the Marauder’s Map, and is so darn cute for a new baby boy.
I’m looking forward to getting this sampler finished and whipped into a cushion so I can start stitching a new pattern soon :)
