Tiny Needle Tuesday

Another TNT rolls around and I have some progress to show.

I finished the last of the leaves on the right side, and got a decent start on the left side. It feels like I should have more progress for two full evenings of stitching, but it’s amazing how time consuming those little stitches really are. Of all my crafts, I think cross stitch is definitely the most time intensive.

I did run out of the dark grey I am using for the stems. I have nothing even remotely close in my floss stash, so I had to do a small order from a somewhat local shop (It’s an hour away). Hopefully it doesn’t take too long to be fulfilled. In the mean time I can carry on without it.

Jenn’s birthday is on March 17th, so the countdown is officially on!

  1. If you have problems getting the floss, let me know what you are missing. If I have it, I’d be glad to mail it to you.

    The cross stitch looks great. I love those purple flowers.

    It’s lovely and yes, it does take so much time to get done. It is very slow going, I have to be in the right frame of mind to pick up my projects because I feel like I never get anywhere.

    Running out of thread is annoying, isn’t it? That sure is a beautiful start though! And I agree X-stitch is very time consuming. Way easier to start than finish, for me at least, too. I might have your missing color also; just let me know.


  4. It’s been years since I picked up the tiny needle, but I remember the time required. I think you’ve made great progress. I hope you’ll be able to acquire the floss so you can meet your deadline.
