Happy Star Wars Day!
I was super excited to see this pop up as a new cross stitch chart last week at Tilton Crafts….

Since I am a huge Star Wars fan, this chart went to the top of my to-do list. I spent my stitching time this week deciding on fabric, gathering floss and getting the gridding in for a new start.
After auditioning many fabics and colors down at my lns, I ended up using a piece of fabric that was in my resource center…. I am stitching on lugana, 32-count in bone, two over two. I was certain that I would go with a blue or grey but my colored fabric phobia continues. I am most happy stitching on a neutral / brown — I will be spending a lot of time with this piece.
With about 100 stitches completed and 137,600 to go, I truly hope the force will be with me!
Needless to say, I did not start the Trip Around the World quilt — maybe tomorrow.
