Frontier Hardware Cross Stitch

I had actually bought this cross stitch kit a couple of years ago on a mother-daughter trip.

I fell in love with the vintage theme and the fact route 66 goes through Arizona. Plus, the coupon helped... 

If you know me either personally or have read the about me section, you know that I love old trucks so I am actually really excited to finish this project and get it framed!

I started this cross stitch a few times and each time I had to start all over because I kept messing up and I could not figure out how to fix it.

Finally back in June 2019, after my mom injured her leg and was on bed rest, I purchased my new cloth so I could start all over once more. 

Since then, I have been religiously working on it almost every day with small breaks here and there. Otherwise, I have been consistent and intent on finishing it. 

This has been a hard, but also fun, project.  I think this is my biggest project thus far. I did do one piece that was about as big but it wasn't as filled in. 

I have made over a dozen—literally—mistakes but this piece is for me personally and the mistakes in it make all my pieces unique and beautiful. When you think about it, it's what also shapes us as people as we are also all unique.

You can buy your kit here.

As you will see below, I have attached photos of my progress. The last photo is of my project finished, washed, and ironed.

I will do an update post once I have it framed. As you can see I didn't take a picture before I started—my starting date was in early June 2019.
