Tae Kwon Do Cross Stitch

Post by jeala »

This is my lovely first cross stitching project in a long time. Thank God I'm starting on something like this, rather than a huge project, where my little flaws would matter. Since I'm in Tae Kwon Do, I wanted to make a wall hanging to go along with my trophies and belts. It says "Tae Kwon Do" in Korean. I apologize for the crappy quality of the picture. >.>

I started just going line by line, but when I figured out that I 'm bad at counting black squares, I started just doing an outline. I messed up at least once on each character, but it was so minor that it didn't hurt it. IT'S STILL ANNOYING. I'll post a new pic when it's done.

I think we can all relate to missing one stitch...(or...a ton in my case). I like the idea of your stitch and would love to see it when it's completed!

FINISHED. D: (I don't know if I like it.) Believe it or not, my favourite part was putting my name on the bottom!

I finished this last Sunday, but since I hate painting, it took me this long to paint the frame for it. XDXD So here's a picture of the finished thing.
