    Default New Cross stitch

    I have not done any sewing or anything in quite some time. So last week I pulled out this xstitch pattern just to give me something to do. Took me a few days to finish it, as I can only work on it during the day when there is more light. Thanks for looking.

    Very pretty! I used to do a lot of cross stitch, and I like picking it up now and then when I want a break from quilting.

    Very pretty! I haven't done any in a long time but I really enjoyed it.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    Love your cross stitch!! Eyes not good enough to do anymore, perhaps not patient enough either!!!

    Barb, I was thinking about you this morning. I love your xstitch piece...so pretty in purple. Do you also xstitch on linen and other evenweaves?

    Michele, One of the things I love about xstitch is that it's so easy to put your things away and keep them neat. When I sew quilts my mess gets out of control. I found a jellyroll strip behind the couch yesterday (Maggie's doing). She loves to grab things a run with them.

    Very good job! May I share what I did a few years ago when eyesight was much better. I did 8 birds and it took me about a year and I enjoyed every minute of it. Such rewarding results! Of course I had them framed and hanging in my living room. Stay with your embroidery if you enjoy it.

    I have always just cross stitched on 11 or 14 count aida cloth, have never used any other cloth.
