My First Cross Stitch Pattern is of the following pic.



I got this as a gift. I used this to make my first pattern. I've had is checked out with friends. They thought I did a good job on it.

Hi Penny,
Have gotten somewhat out of the habit of getting online lately, so haven't been keeping up with CSCF. What is going on in there? Still busy? Hope so. Will try to chat later. Going to rip out some knitting and have to restart in a larger size. the size pattern is for someone that is about 5' and 110 lbs.
I'm 5'2" and 173 lbs. A big difference. I have to lengthen the shrug as well as add to the diameter on the cast-on. Will have to pick up at least one more skein of yarn at $15.00 each, possibly two. Shoot, saved up a long time for those original four skeins that the pattern called for. Hopefully I will be able to wear it when I get done. This is why I don't sew. Things just don't fit when I sew for myself. Don't know why. Wish me luck.
