X-StitchSo I'm sure you were wondering when this one would turn up. It was too good an opportunity to have something for X so I had to turn around cross stitch.
This is a wonderful craft... you may notice it is my main craft, the one I always come back to. I love how soothing it is to just sit there and create cross after cross. It is so much fun just to sit there and make a picture appear.

Cross stitch is a wonderful way to create pictures using thread. It's like making little pixel pictures. I love the repeating patterns. It's a form of embroidery that is a stitch formed by crossing two stitches.
So I have to pull out examples. This is really hard to pick examples to show you.

If you want to find out more about where to get any design I've shown you please ask me. I love giving you help.
