Take a Stitch Tuesday - Cross Stitch

Ok so I have already confessed to the fact that I have been totally useless when it comes to keeping up with the TAST challenge. I know Sharon has said that it is something we can all dip in and out of but I had hoped to have been in more than out when this first started.

I have been keeping up with all of the wonderful creations that have come out of the challenge though and there has been some stunning work. I decided that this would be the week that I get my butt into gear and make something for the challenge again so here it is.There are so many lovely stitches for me to catch up on but I decided to go with the cross stitch. In the past I have made lots of cross stitched pictures and cross stitch was my Mum's passion. I thought it would be interesting for me to use the stitch in a different way so have made all my stitches totally wonky, very different from the hours I have spent in the past stitching even little stitches over aida. I just loved the process of making this poatcard, very liberating to use the cross stitch in this way.

This card will be going to SuZ for the FAF birthday swap.

Your pc's are all very nicely put together as usual. I like the idea of the edges fraying as the postcard goes on its journey.

This is very nice. I like the difference in scale of your crosses.
