Crafting–Change of Pace

After all the holiday sewing, I am taking a hiatus from sewing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still crafting, but, not sewing. So, have I tweaked your curiosity?

I am engaged in an embroidery project–a very large rectangular table cloth. It is a cross-stitch repeating patterns of chevrons and intertwining lines that make up parallelograms. These motifs make up a border trim. The center of the table cloth also has a large rectangle in this motif. Each chevron consists of 111 x’s. Each parallelogram is comprised of 214 x’s. As the border rows intersects with a corner chevron that consists of 105 x’s. The entire project uses three shades of green.

Here’s what the design looks like.

I’m enjoying myself on this project, but, it is time-consuming. I think it makes a great winter project.
