I’ve seen a couple of cross stitch pendants and thought they looked fun to stitch. The only place I could find them was from the workroom, a Canadian sewing shop, so I duly ordered a couple and waited for them to arrive.
I was really pleased with the laser cut cross stitch pendants, both wooden, one with a scalloped edge and one circular, which measure just over 2″.
I wanted to stitch something to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee so I found some free Jubilee motifs from CrossStitcher. The motifs included a union flag (which I stitched for the God Save the Queen swap I recently took part in), a red phone box, red London bus, black London cab and a colourful crown which I thought would be fun.
It was really easy and quick to stitch and I like the finished result. The only thing I didn’t like was that the yellow thread quickly dulled as it picked up dirt whilst threading through the pendant. This must be a side effect of the fact the pendant is laser cut so next time I will stitch something using stronger colours.
