newest project is on light blue Aida and features my old friend metallic thread. So far E5200 and I have been getting along well.

Today I finished my Devil’s Tower cross stitch kit from a Posy Collections pattern I bought at the Devil’s Tower National Monument gift shop in Wyoming. Devil’s Tower has been one of my favorite Western destinations since I was a little girl, and the cross stitch kit I purchased is one of many I’ve bought at National Park sites. This design was not my favorite, but it makes a great addition to my wall. I was a bit disappointed that the rock is colored gray and the kit was a bit difficult to decipher based on the black and white pattern and unmarked thread pulls…differentiating “very light gray” from “light gray” and “medium gray” was a bit of a task, but I’m happy to be done and on my way to another project!

Still working, though it’s been awhile since my last update. This pattern I’m working on is from a kit I bought at the Devil’s Tower gift shop. The pattern is designed by the Posy Collection. It’s a little more pixelated than I normally like designs, and I don’t love the choice of colors, but it will be another great addition to my national parks wall!

Day 2 . Not going to lie, I’m pretty bored with this design. No spectacle, color or frills?! But I must have it for my national park wall. Fellow NPS afficianados may be familiar with the series of cross stitch kits produced by the Posy Collection that have been popping up at historic sites and parks. This one is from one of my favorite places out West, a place I’ve frequented four times in the last four years….
