TAST Week 9 Cross Stitch February 27th, 2007

visual journal ideas for cross stitchI will be interested to see what everyone else does with this stitch, personally I have found it quite a challenge as I have never thought about Cross Stitch other than cross stitch done on a grid to form a picture and initially I had no thoughts as to how I could use it as a seam treatment on crazy patchwork.

Sitting down with my visual journal I started by writing the word cross in little crosses and then drew a pattern, using crosses down the left side of the page, I then did some bigger crosses (because as a seam treatment I think that they will need to be bigger) and then I did different angled crosses and ones that didn’t cross in the middle and arrangeing different sized crosses together, I don’t know how they will translate into thread but at least they give me a starting point.
