My William Morris Snakeshead cross stitch is done. I thought this was going to take me a year. I’m pretty familiar with how much time I’ll spend doing things on the side at home. As with many other things, this was the year I’d be wrong with that estimate.
This pattern had no back stitch, was was actually nice, since I hadn’t done much of any embroidery since 2001. It’s not perfect – it ended up a warping the fabric a bit so that it sits a little crookedly (I’ll blame having to move my hoop around over nine panels), but I’m ok with that. It really does look very cool.
Haven’t decided what to do with it yet. We’re still settling out on wall art after moving, so I’m putting it away in a safe place with my other embroidery, and I’ll think about it later once some of our other stuff is settled.
