TBT: Red and Black

I thought it was time for a little throwback Thursday, so today I’m sharing an older finished cross stitch piece that I made:


I made these snowflake/star things in December 2014; they were my last finish for that year. This was my first project working on black aida and it was not nearly so bad as I thought it would be! The holes are a bit harder to see but it gets easier with lots of light and a light-colored background to hold the fabric against. I had a hard time working with it when I was wearing jeans, but if I held it in my lap wearing light-colored pants, it was much easier!

Free Chart: Red Rose

Today I have another free chart for you, a little red rose design. The two charts are the same, one has colors & symbols, the other is black and white (symbols only). You can click on either of them to make them bigger.

Here is what it looks like stitched up (this is 2 strands on 16 count aida):


Enjoy, & share pictures if you stitch up this rose!
