I purchased this little wooden cross stitch pendant a few weeks ago on line. I love a clean slate. Oh the possibilities! I decided to just make simple pattern. With embroidery floss that I happened to have on hand. A light turquoise, a bright red and black. I love this shade of blue, it makes me think of a globe. I thought that this would be a quick and simple project. It wasn't. In fact, it took a few nights of dedication and several sore fingers to finish. Finishing up the last half, I finally realized that I could use a thimble. That made the process much less painful. This little pendant will get lots of wear this spring and summer.
