Counted Cross Stitch - Previous Projects and Current WIP

My favorite hobby is Cross Stitching. Over the years I have given away and sold many pieces that I have stitched and I so regret not taking pictures of them before letting them go. I've made tooth fairy pillows, jar lid covers, bookmarks and small and large pictures.

You can see a few pieces that I have stitched on my Instagram as well as updates of the current one I'm working on.

A bit about my Cross Stitch habits...
  • My favorite cloth to work with is Aida.
  • My favorite thread is DMC.
  • I use the stabbing technique because the sewing and parking method... I would have a mess.
  • I don't use Cross Stitch needles. I use regular sewing needles because I have a hard time running my finishing thread through on the back with cross stitch needles.
  • I use hoops on larger projects but would love to have a q-snap frame.
  • I purchased a huge lot of DMC thread years ago on eBay and I still have tons left. Plus, I've only had to purchase a few replacements. 
Here is a picture of the current work in progress...

It's the Spring pattern from the Seasonal Bouquets booklet by Marjolein Bastin (which I purchased from Hobby Lobby years ago for less than a buck! Woo Hoo!)

Below are a few pictures of past projects. I still need to iron them, but I won't do that until I'm ready to frame them. I'm still sad about not taking pictures of all of them.
