When do you cross stitch the most?

Melissa - pixel art
1st: kit of a care bear sledding down the hill, spilled pasta sauce on it, but i covered with white, and sledding directly into a snow bank
2nd 100 different colors - 3 or 4 years now
Elixabeth - husband was looking at pixel art and i was like I can stitch that!
middle school santa
recently, started with deathstar

there is an end!
minor goals to get to 3 sections
i can fnish the sky in likee 3 months.
melissa 10x10 square and fill it in

Eliza - scatter method. do all the blue and then go back and go in.

Do u mark off 10x10 sections? i like to use fabric marker, others have used fishing line.
fishing line - weave through fabric?

Embroidery is more like a freestyle approach & not limited to grid

Like pixel art, but more flexibility like back sticking to outline, french knot to get a point there. 3/4 stitches or half stitch

when ur NOT doing 100 colors, cross stitch is a very easy hands busy that doesn’t require my full attention.

Eliza usually have a small cross stich going- but driving up the wall without it.

Tools of cross stitch - needle rabbit hole. reddit for cross stitch

lace knit shawl

while it’s great to challenge yourself, don’t just off a cliff.
