Ashlene's Cross Stitching Projects

These are my first attempts at cross stitching. I dabbled with some kits when I was younger, but never got much into it until now.

Pika Pile is of course a pattern found on here by HardcoreEskimoKisses.

My first pattern I created from a sprite found on the sprite resource. Also my first go at ironing and framing the piece. Still trying to figure out how to get projects perfectly ironed.

Just started my charity square and am liking it so far. It is way more refreshing of a project than Shao Kahn was. He had so many color changes.

All great pieces!

About the ironing - I always find it works best when the stitching/aida is still damp. :)

Thank you! Yeah, I did iron it while it was still damp. I think my problem is that I haven't really used an iron much. That and I'm paranoid about burning the cloth. I'll just keep practicing and hopefully will get smoother results next time.
