Yarn Sale & Epic Mario Cross-Stitch Update

WEBS is having a sale on yarn! I wanted to dance a little when I saw that Cascade 220 was on sale too. I just got my purchase in the mail the other day. The box pretty much exploded with the yarn. I'm sure, I will be swimming in yarn for awhile now. I'm attempting to start on my Christmas presents early so we will see how I do....


I also wanted to share a update picture of my Epic Nintendo Mario Cross-Stitch. I'm getting sssooo close! I'm excited to be almost done with the sky. That was just horrible and I kept jumping around the cross-stitch. I know some people pride themselves on having the backside of there cross-stitch work look just as good as the front. I honestly don't care...who cares what the back looks like as long as the front is amazing. Sorry about the hoop print. I will be ironing over the completed work to get the wrinkles out.

WOW!! what an amazing cross stitch - my son LOVES mario, I would love to make something like that, but my biggest cross stich attempt was probably about a third of that size, and took forever (and quite a lot of swearing!). You're right about the back - who cares if it's higgledy piggledy, it's the front that people look at. Well done!
