October - First week of stitching

So my plan for October is cross stitching and I started on the 1st and have been rotating between Sampler 4 Saisons and Sweet Christmas. Here's my progress after one week! 

My stitching on the Sampler 4 Saisons is coming along quite nicely. It helps that it is a softer linen so that my tapestry needle goes through easily.

On the Sweet Christmas pattern, I have moved down below the strawberry cake motif and started working on the next motif which is a cute assortment of mini cakes.

It takes me more time to stitch on this linen despite it being the same count as the Sampler 4 Saisons linen due to the texture of the linen.

In other stitching news, I have joined Stephanie at bluestarstitcher and two other ladies in a Christmas cross stitch exchange. Hooked on Exchanging has been slack all year as I'm sure everyone is busy with crafting and life in general. I was so glad that Stephanie posted about doing an exchange.

I went by Barnes and Noble yesterday and found Just Cross Stitch's Christmas ornament issue (about time I found it)! I'll see if anything catches my eye for an exchange otherwise I'll pull out my old issues of various Christmas cross stitch magazines and 'browse' for ideas.

Until next time >___<


  1. You made some nice progress on both your projects. That tree grows more and more and I love to see your progress pictures of it.
    Have fun with your exchange with Stephanie.

  2. Both of these are sweet projects and what gorgeous stitching.
