Cross Stitch Sugar Skull

I am still experiencing my learning skill with cross stitch, so any charts that I “put out there” are going to be pretty simple. (which can be a plus, since you can make them quickly and while watching TV, etc)  When I drafted the colors of the chart, I was working on a white background.  HOWEVER, when I did the sample, I worked on a cream background.  No big deal, right?

As I worked the chart, I grew more and more disgruntled with the colors. Then I had one of those “duh” eureka moments! It was a big deal to switch from a white background to a cream background. I had to shift my color palate to complement the cream 14 count aida.  So if you notice the difference in colors between the chart and the finished piece – now you know the reason.

The crocheted frame is offered as a paid pattern. There are currently 3 size variations of the frames included in one pattern. The patterns will be available via my Ravelry, Craftsy and Etsy storefronts.

Enjoy!
