Once Upon a Time Cross Stitch Sampler: February

I’m doing the Once Upon a Time cross stitch sampler from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.  Each month is a different fairy tale, and it’s so fun to find out what fairy tale will be revealed next!

February was the Frog Prince, with a big ole smooch!  I’m still working on the borders as I go, and loving this sampler so much!

Below are a few progress pics…

  1. So, I have a cross stitch question: how do you neatly transition from one section to another? Do you just have to end off even if the section is only like 2 stitches? I was lazy and carried thread across a few times but I know you’re probably not supposed to do that…

    1. I try to cover as much ground with one color as I can. I hate rethreading so it’s almost a game to plan the best use of floss and order. Small jumps are fine, but you’re right that you don’t want to do it too often – mostly because it wastes floss and makes the back messy, but it’s not too big of a deal. (Lots of YouTube videos if you ever want to go down that rabbit hole.) I’m so excited you’re starting to x stitch!!!
