Summer Cross Update – 7-1-16

Summer Cross 6-16-16First off, I realize that it’s not July 1st. That was when I took an update picture and I just haven’t had time to post it.

So, as of June 16th this was as far as I had gotten. I had finished up all of the regular stitching and was getting ready to start in on the background lettering.




Summer Cross 7-1-16And here it is as of July 1st. All of the words are complete on the right side of the cross. Now I just have to finish them on the left side.

Some more exciting news is that I found the frame for it today. It was originally $50, but Michael’s had it on clearance for $23. It’s a slightly lighter wooden frame than what I used for the Winter cross, but I think that’s exactly what I need. I don’t want to frame this light and summery cross with a heavy, dark frame. It will probably be at least another month before I’ve finished all of the outlining, but I can’t wait to have this framed and on the wall!
