Counted Cross Stitch

I needed a portable hand stitching project this week and remembered this kit that I bought before Christmas.  I actually bought a few of these kits --I gave a couple away as gifts and kept a couple for myself.  I completed the first one in time to hang the ornament on the tree, but the second one languished in its wrappings...

...until I went looking for it this week and got to work!

The kit comes with everything, right down to the needle, to make the ornament.  The wooden disc is laser cut.

I managed to get quite a bit done earlier this week and hope to have some time tomorrow to complete it during my Slow Sunday Stitching time with Kathy and the others who link up with her every week.

Here's what I have done so far.

Speaking of Cross Stitching, my daughter is well on her way to finishing her Detroit Skyline Cross Stitch picture.   She worked on it last weekend.

I showed a picture of my witch hazel bush in flower in my last post.  One morning this week, it looked like this:  

Ugh...I am so ready for Spring!


  1. Love the ornament. I've never seen anything like that before xx

  2. Cute ornament and your daughter is doing great with her cross stitch work. ♥

  3. That's such a cute project and your daughter is making wonderful progress!

    We had some snow this week as well / 23 degrees this morning

  4. The ornament is really cute. Maybe I need something bigger like that to get my cross stitch mojo back. I'm trying, but my eyes are playing tricks on me. Happy stitching!

  5. I haven't seen a piece like that were you stitch to what looks like plastic? instead of fabric - it will be nice for sure

  6. What a fun project and very portable too.

  7. This is the perfect portable project with everything needed to enjoy some stress free stitching! We are sooooo wanting the cold weather to be DONE!

  8. Great idea, those round laser cute things...... hmmmmm.....

  9. I spent a good portion of Friday driving through a snow-storm to visit my daughter. I would prefer April showers to April snow. I like your little ornament. It looks interesting and easy.
