Lots of pictures will be in this post ^_^.
I got the basket outline done on Kitty Litter.
Ugh, to the hoop mark still. I’ll forever be haunted by how dirty this one has become. I know it’s my second cross stitch and all but still it’s disappointing. Now, I’m super careful and always take it out the hoop when I store it. I’m extremely careful and anal about how I’m storing my cross stitching projects. My goal is just to not get them as dirty as they could be. Lol, I actually wash my hands constantly when working on my projects so…yeah it goes that far. I’m a boss on my cross stitching haha.
Speaking about this project, I almost came to a terrible stand still again when I almost ran out of floss. Luckily, I still had enough of the floss to finish up all the stitches that needed it. I ran out of one type of floss, months ago, for this project and had to order it, I didn’t have to pay for it though they sent it to me for free so all smiles there haha, but I’m just surprised I’m running out. I think I just expected to have leftovers when the project was finished. Like when I finished the Oriental Orchids. Hope I don’t have to order more floss before I’m finished with the project. I’m worried I’ll have to. When you have momentum and you’re in the “zone” it just sucks to have to stop everything because you are out of floss and then wait a week to get it. It’s hard to get that feeling again.
On to a better note. I found a new box to make my lightbox!
It’s bigger and I’m excited to cut and use it. Below you can see the comparison of my old and soon-to-be lightboxes.
I’m serious…you should totally get/make a light box for photos of little things. It’s sooo helpful when taking pictures. I don’t have great lighting in my room/house, as my house doesn’t really have great sun for photos outside either because it’s the mountain and hill area, and was grateful to be able to make one. With this bigger one I won’t have to worry so much about breaking through the top to make everything stand up, like when I’m taking photos of my cross stitches *derp*.
So…yay to that hehe.
I’ll be working on this the rest of the week because I’m determined to have the basket done before next post. Hope you all have a great week. And as always….
