So Cute it Hurts

A week or so back I signed up for Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery’s Dessert of the Month. It was only $10, and I will get 12 little cross-stitched dessert patterns over the course of the year. (On top of that Amanda is such a neat person that I couldn’t resist. You must go check out her blog. Hi Amanda!) The patterns are tiny, so I knew it was something I could squeak in over an evening. The first pattern came out on Wednesday and I think I actually made an out loud “squeek!” when I saw it. So. dang. cute.

It’s a little champagne truffle! Isn’t that adorable? I stitched on a natural coloured 32 count linen (thanks Becky!) and used DMC floss. I didn’t have the exact colours that the pattern called for in some cases, but it was pretty darn close. And Becky suggested that I hold a sparkly blending filament in with the floss. I think some people are using Cosmo floss, which has some metallic options, but I am hoping to keep this project as inexpensive as possible. I have so much floss in the stash, I really don’t want to add to it. So at $1.65 for 50m of filament (which I can add to any colour) I was sold. I added it to the white and the pink, which is difficult to see in this picture. In real life though it has just a hint of sparkle when you move it.

I can’t wait to see what next month brings!

    That is too cute for words! Thanks for telling me about these, Dani. I’m going to take fibers and linen with me to do these as they come out. They’ll be quick and fun when I’m homesick. ;o)
