Stitch Maynia: Day 25 Roadside Sellers

Day 25: Roadside Sellers by Hannes Needlecraft on Etsy, fabric by Mo's Sale.

I had found this pattern on Etsy when I first discovered for cross stitch about 4 years ago.  This really reminds me of the time I spent living in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  I had searched and searched for a fabric that could help capture the heat, the active frenzy of life, and the beautiful color of the dirt in Africa.  I was so excited when I found this one at Mo's Sale that seemed perfect!  

I only got a little bit of stitching done on this of the two African hut statues on my first stitching session.  

The next time I pulled this out to stitch I got a bit more done on the first fence post.  There is another design above it that you will find out more about later :).  Until then,...Happy Stitching!


  1. This is such an interesting chart reflecting different aspect of a different culture. Would love to do something like this.

    1. Thanks! I saw this scene everyday when I lived in Africa.

  2. The fabric you chose is wonderful. I can't wait to see this piece grow.
