Cup and Saucers

Salaams and hello to all my friends and readers,

Move on to my next WIP - cup and saucer cross stitch by design works. I had completed the wording and the lace part, leaving me to work on the cup and saucers plus the multiple heart shape for the background. I don't have any problems working on this chart but I had purposely create a problem for myself..hahaha :-)

I knew from the beginning that the length of the Aida fabric which I plan to use is not sufficient to accommodate the whole design nicely. I will need to extent the fabric length by joining it with another Aida fabric should I want to proceed with the existing fabric.

I could not find any information from Mr Google about how to do it, so it is up to me to make it happen - my way *wink* for -- unnoticeable and smooth join. After some thinking and experimenting, I took the plunge to join the fabric, something which I never done before with a precaution that I must carefully join the pieces so that the row of threads are in the straight line. can still noticed the joined *wink* but since it was almost at the end of the chart, I think it is not so obvious and acceptable to ke?..we shall see the final result after framing.

Till next entry, Take care and tons of love from me!
