Long time, no updates, but I can assure you all, gentle readers, that I have been stitching away. I just haven’t had the time to take nice pictures to share with you! But now that’s changed and I am proud to present one of my recent finishes, this fun pineapple cross stitch.
I wanted to use some of my large collection of variegated and metallic threads, so I made up this pattern to use them up! I love the juicy yellows and oranges!
I also used the gold metallic thread (from DMC) to make a checkerboard pattern all over the fruit part, and framed it in a gold-painted hoop. Oh so shiny!
I covered up the back with this green and white printed cotton from a fat-quarter pack I got at Joann.
