Hello, and Happy Tuesday, my friends! This past week was as busy as last week, so I just stuck with my stitching. I was rather excited to get to work on Poison Garden, so I was happy to concentrate my creative energy on that WIP. I did end up working my first 1 [strand of floss] over 1 [thread of fabric] stitches. It took me all day to get all four areas of 1 over 1 done. I can hardly see them well, so in my mind they’re beautiful stitches. I don’t know that it is true, but I’m going with it anyway!
This week I will try to get to finishing the Paradiso quilt top. The whole month of March seems to be so busy for us, so I’m not putting any pressure on myself about getting the top finished. If it gets done, it gets done! I hope you are all having a great month so far. We don’t observe Daylight Savings Time, so we haven’t been affected by the time change. If you do observe it where you live, I hope the adjustment is easy on you this year!

I hadn’t done one-over-one cross stitching for quite a while, but I do remember how tiny those stitches were! I’d need a magnifying glass now to see my work, for sure. ~smile~ Roseanne
Wow, was that stitching ever intense! I can’t stitch without magnifiers on. I actually wear a headmount magnifier with an LED light every time I stitch. I look a bit dorky, but at least I can see!!
Beautiful stitching, Christine! This craft must take a lot of patience! March is a crazy busy month for me & my family too. But Spring is coming, so it is worth the craziness!
This project is certainly going to take a lot of my patience! It’s not just regular ol’ cross stitch, and I am learning a bunch of different specialty stitches. I’m enjoying it all (so far)! Yay for Spring!!!
One over one is very tiny but does give the most delicate result. Hard on the eyes is my complaint about it (at my age now). This is turning out to be so pretty.
Thank you, Jocelyn! Thank goodness for magnifiers, or I wouldn’t be able to stitch it at all!
