Cross-Stitch on Mesh


When you’re a needlearts person, you can’t look at a material with holes in it without thinking, “Hey … I could stitch on that!” I’ve seen stitching on window screens, and I’ve stitched on peg boards, so I love seeing this front porch sign in progress over on Stitch-Cook-Grow-Love. Lily took metal mesh and stapled it to the back of a large wooden frame, and is stitching a sign with strips of fabric. She gives some handy tips on what kind and size of fabric “thread” to use for stitching. I can’t wait to see the finished sign!
