My 30 Day Designing Challenge, Day 1

I have been frustrated as of late for my lack of inspiration and motivation when it comes to designing cross stitch patterns. Today as I worked on a pattern I decided that I was going to challenge myself...30 patterns in 30 days. This will give me motivation to finally finish some ideas that are already started and to chart ideas that are in my head.

Each pattern won't be posted until I am 100% happy with the product and if it is something that I would like to stitch myself. Most will be small patterns but I am going to try and get 1 or 2 bigger projects finished.

Day 1, Design 1&2:

Sweet Petites Cake Stands

Ladies Night, Happy Hour

I will be missing a couple of days at the end of the month so some days will have 2 sometimes 3 designs. Feel free to leave suggestions down below for what you think would be fun to do. And as always please feel free to join in on the challenge!

    Don't worry Katya I took this weekend off to relax a bit but I am itching to start designing a new one right now!

    Agi that is a great idea! I will for sure go onto my list of things to design.
