I really enjoy participating in Take a Stitch Tuesday with Sharon B. Especially when it is such a fun stitch. This week was Raised Cross Stitch . I am pretty sure that I have tried this stitch once before but then forgot about it. So my attempts this week are not the best. First one on the left is really bad and needs to be removed. The second one in the middle is acceptable and I will keep. Third one not so good again. I did not want to end on a sour note so I gave it one more try and used some Glisten Gloss Estaz thread (bottom photo). I love the way it turned out. I really must practice this stitch some more so as to keep it in my head!
