Yesterday, armed with a book and an instructional youtube video, I learned how to cross stitch.
Like its name suggests, you merely make a lot of little stitches that make the form of a x to make some sort of image or word or whatever it is you are wanting to embroider, usually using a pattern. I’m not done with my first project yet, but you can see my progress above.
I’m sharing this with you, because I’m not sharing my Day Seven drawing, like I promised. I’m just not feeling inspired by my drawing challenge prompts. Starting the challenge has already motivated me to start a couple other drawing endeavors, so I think it has served its purpose for now. I am publicly releasing myself from my commitment. Please don’t think less of me — see, I learned how to cross stitch! I can do things. (I’ll share with you my other drawing endeavors as they take shape.)
And then there’s this, which is beautiful. (You should make it full screen)
