Cross-Stitch #1: Pixel People Wedding Present

I took up cross-stitching again this summer after giving up on knitting (or crocheting for that matter).  I’m pleased to say that in just a few short months, I’ve finished my first project!  Because this was a wedding present, I needed to put aside my other project for a bit to work on it, so this stitch actually only took me about two weeks to complete.  Impressive, yes?

My good friends, Lynn Marie and Josh, were getting married, and I spotted a custom pattern on Etsy at the shop, Wee Little Stitches, that will turn the happy couple (and their pets if you like) into pixel people.  It seemed like the perfect gift for the happy, geeky couple, so I went for it!

It was a very exciting project because it was my first time assembling the pieces myself instead of buying a kit.  It was so much fun to go gather everything at Michael’s!  It was also the first stitch project I’ve ever actually completed. As a child I learned a lot of stitches on a challenging pattern, but never actually finished it.  So lots of firsts here!

Up next, I plan on finishing up my wolves in the snow kit, then on to a pattern designed for me by my bf (for Christmas).  Yay!
