SAL -#1 – Crown of Thorns

I’m back! I am so excited to be back with my favorite stitchers. I was gone for quite a while because I wanted to concentrate on getting my debt paid down. Now that I am well into my 80 week challenge I decided it was time to get back to stitching.

I received a kit for Christmas that I have been quite taken with for years. It’s a chart of Jesus’s face with His crown of thorns which is by Vervaco. Thank you mom for the very thoughtful Christmas present! This image is haunting to me. Just beautiful in fact.

I haven’t stitched a kit in years so I am trying not to mess us to often because I don’t want to run out of a color.

Here is the kit image and here is how much I have gotten done so far. I have had to rip thread out twice! I’ll get there though.

  1. Welcome back! Happy to hear you are finding success paying down debt. That can be a real challenge. You’ve already made great progress on your new kit. While it looks like a challenging piece, it looks like you will be quick to stitch it!

  2. Welcome back and I will look forward to watching this grow. I find if I have something that’s difficult to follow then I photo copy or scan the chart and mark each little bit as I do it. Not every stitch but every little group of stitches and that helps me to keep on track. Sometimes I just scan a small section of the chart and print it off large so its easier to see especially if I am going through a phase where I find it hard to concentrate, this really seems to help.
