I have long appreciated Cross Stitching, being a sewer of the same myself and it warmed my heart to read this morning that it is making a come back with girls in the UK, growing in popularity. Young ladies gathering together to visit, potluck and sew! And it's one I can't wait to see take off here in the US as I think too much time is spent in electronic friendships via social media.
If you've ever done cross stitch you KNOW the L-O-N-G hours that are put into such a small space on fabric that it's almost not worth taking up for those who lack patience or want quick results from a craft like painting, crocheting or knitting will give you. And of course I have always gravitated to the more complex patterns but they've always been worth the results... like this below.
Hope your enjoying your Holiday weekend....
