My Own Cross Stitch Design
I decided to create my very own cross stitch using the Sydney Opera House design featured in this post. I started the cross stitch around the time that was posted, in July, so it has taken far longer than usual! However the piece is around 20cm by 30cm and is totally covered in stitching, and I was also working on several other projects at the same time, which is something I rarely do.
To add further depth to the design, I used more than one colour to 'fill in' the design, which has again made it look different to the original. A strength of mine is taking one design idea and stretching it, taking it as far as I can to create a number of varying designs originating from that first small idea.
Thanks for reading.
