20 in 20 giveaway (day 1)...

handmade
Make 20 handmade projects in 20 days...and then give them all away! That's the idea behind 20 in 20. I'm kicking off day 1 with bargello, baby. Cross-stitched and then stretched onto canvas...oh, and I followed a pattern. A pattern! From this rad book! There's hope for me yet, peeps. You may have caught of glimpse of this project here. I started it last week, not planning for it to be part of 20 in 20, but I suspected that you all may like it and had to share. Thanks to Hey Buddy! for sponsoring today's project. Happy commenting!
