Sweet as Pie Cross Stitch: June 2017

I thought I was taking a break from yearlong cross stitch projects, but those sneaky Frosted Pumpkins caught me at a weak moment by debuting a new mystery SAL during my birthday month… and the thought of chronicling my 30th year with adorable kawaii pies was too cute to resist! So here I am again with a monthly update on my progress.

If you’re interested, you can check out my completed yearlong cross stitch projects here:

Pumpkin Passport in 2016

June’s pie is Key Lime pie! This little guy stitched up super quickly since I already had some of the framework started. I worked on the border a bit after the pie was done, and I’ll continue adding to it throughout the year.

I probably won’t bake the featured pie every month, but I actually used the included recipe since my Dad loves key lime pie and my parents happen to be visiting this week. It’s in the fridge now, I’ll let you know how it tastes!
