Theme-Tas-Stitch May is Monochrome


This is my Monochrome May stitching.  I am following a wonderful Monthly Themed Stitch Along Theme-Tas_Stitch sponsored by Kelly over at Ranblings of a Biscornu Addict.  I have one small project to share.  But let me tell you.

It was a little bit of a challenge, and was super glad I stitched this with Orange - so bright - it was very easy to rip out over and over and over again.

UGH!.  What I have learned.  I need patience to do this hardanger stitching.  This is a floss tube video Hardanger  Along I am doing on line with Stitching With A Smile   And Yes I should have done the tutorials she has provided for all of us first.  But she is a wonderful instructor.  Amazing.

I am so use to adjusting for all of my mistakes in my cross stitching this was a bit of a challenge.  I still somewhere have made a little mistake, but I swear I am not taking this out again.  Just going with the flow.

But this is me doing one of my goals - Learn new Stitches - for 2017.  I know I will be stitching more things like this because, I am sure once I get this figured out I will love it.

  3. Great work on this one. I find hardanger can be soothing once you get into a rhythm with it, but the first time was a challenge for me as well.
