Been lurking for a while, but have not posted as I haven't finished anything in a while. You wouldn't believe the number of projects that I've got sat about waiting for me to finish them *wry*.

Not really played with my beads in a while either, but I had one of those I feel like doing something days. And this is the end result.

I don’t know if this counts as recycle/upcycle, I've always called it re-purposing, but here is something I do.

I go to a lot of yard sales, I'll buy cross stitch kits. (If I remember right the most I've paid for one is 50 cents) It doesn’t matter if I like the design or not. I take the kit apart, put the canvas with that stash and the thread in my thread box. If it's printed I just use the reverse side.

I always have the canvas when I find a design that I want to make (I don’t do a whole lot of counted cross stitch and I don’t remember the last time I bought the canvas at a store) and I'm re-purposing something that was going to be thrown out anyway.

And here's something  I stitched with that.
