September Finish

This design comes from the September 2010 Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. The chart has three segments and I chose to do just two since I could only find a dual, not a triple frame. I took Aida 11 and dyed one piece lime green and the other tangerine. The rit dye website has an easy method for dying fabric with a quick set in the microwave! No more rinsing in water with salt - the high temps in the microwave set the color in under 2 minutes.

The cross stitch was a quick finish and the framing couldn't have been easier. I wrapped the fabric around a mat board and removed the glass.

August Finish

This cross stitch pillow was finished 2 weeks ago with upholstery fabric on the back.
