Original Cross Stitch: December 2017

In December, I took on a quick original design cross stitch project to take a break from quilting. The design was created via code (JavaScript) that layers randomly sized triangles one on top of another in a grid space. The colors are randomly chosen from a pie chart that controls the approximate percentage each color is used. Once I created the code generated random design, I brought it into Photoshop and saved it as a cross stitch design with Photoshop grid lines.

The cross stitching itself used DMC embroidery thread, Aida 14 count, and is framed in a Tiny Mighty frame. It is primarily composed of standard cross stitches and 3/4 stitches. I’m happy with how it turned out despite that I’m still a beginner to cross stitching. It’s an Ingrid approved activity!

Started a new baby friendly project. An original design cross stitch pattern, using the same random code generator that I used on my recent mini quilt. #crossstitching #crossstitch #dmc #dmcthread #originaldesign #babiesofinstagram #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #stephskardalquiltscs2017 ...

Slow, meditative progress here on my quilt inspired cross stitch. Will finish just under 4”x4”, and then I’ll put it in a matted frame. I also finished prepping quilts for QuiltCon today. They are ready to go! #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modern #dmc #dmcthread #crossstitch #crossstitching #xstitch #aida14 #stephskardalquiltscs2017 ...
