I've bumbled, stumbled and grumbled my way through creating my first cross stitch design and I can't believe how much I've loved doing it!
Now that the first design has been completed and received such kind reviews, I'm emboldened to think that some might like to go on a journey of design with me in bringing the second design to life. Fair Warning!! It is addictive!! There seems to be no off switch to the designing madness, and when you are lying awake at three in the morning with it going full steam it can be a bit of a nuisance.
So you are fairly warned and now invited to step aboard as we begin the creation of my second design, Heart Note Alley
First, you see a photo of a working draft. I found in creating Northern Nights that the designing wasn't done till the last stitch was made! So it is quite likely that by the time this next piece is done it may look significantly different than it does right now.
I'll bring you up to date in next post, how it got to this point.
