I finally finished the Sherlock cross stitch using the Wee Little Stitches pattern. This is actually the first time I’ve ever done a project from someone else’s pattern. I started the Quilty Stitchalong but haven’t finished it.
It was interesting working from someone else’s pattern, this was also the first time I’ve ever done back stitching. I was so ready to be done
with the project that I wanted to skip it, but I’ll admit that it does add a nice finished quality.
This took a lot longer than I expected, but I’m really pleased with the outcome. Now to get this packed up and shipped off to RockIslander in Bermuda! Hopefully she likes it as much as I love my firefly needlebook she sent me!
She sure does!! Thank you so much for making this for me – so glad we swapped! xo
Yay! I’m so glad too!

It looks great!
It’s SUPER cute! I wish I knew how to do this kind of stuff 🙂
Cross stitch is pretty simple! I keep thinking I should put together a beginner’s guide, it’s really not as intimidating as it seems!
That’s so awesome!! Cross stitch and I don’t get along. Lol. You’ve done a great job on this one.
It definitely takes a little bit of practice. I recently went back and looked at my first couple cross stitches and they are a huge mess. Once you get into a groove, it gets easier!

This is so great! I’ve never seen a Sherlock pattern before.
Wee Little Stitches has almost every pattern imaginable! If there’s a show or movie you like, chances are they’ve got a pattern! 🙂

this is GORGEOUS and I LOVE sherlock, what an excellent pattern and finished project!! I love how pale Sherlock’s face is haha how accurate 🙂 jenny xx
I know, I thought it was funny that Moriarty and Sherlock both are so much paler than the other people.
