Cross Stitch Progress

Just a quick post to share my progress on Diamond Quilts by Handblessings Designs.  Have you ever started a project with all the threads you need and mid way through think to yourself, I think I might run out of thread??  Well, this is a SAL design where 3 squares are released quarterly.  I stitched the first three squares and started stitching the borders for the next three.  When I finished those I looked at the remaining thread Waterflowers Neferetti and thought there is no way I will have enough.  I then proceeded to stitch all of the borders instead of the next blocks to be sure I had enough. Well, I indeed had enough with about an 8 inch snippet to spare. Phew!! That was close.  Now back to stitching the blocks.  I have a little catch up to do but I am enjoying the colors on this one and it is a very easy relaxing project. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stitching!

What a pretty design. I have only had one kit that I ran out of thread. It is very annoying.

Looking forward to seeing your progress.

I love this design. It's so pretty!
I recently finished stitching Birds of a Feather by With Thy Needle & Thread. I had a major frogging incident and as a result I ended up squeezing out the last stitch with the final bit of floss! I literally had only little more than an inch left.
