Back in the Day
Back in the day I used to cross-stitch...A LOT...if I was sitting I was stitching, I couldn't stitch in the car but I could stitch just about any place else. I was clearing out a bin of my old stitching supplies and came across this piece that I started, the date on the pattern is 1995, the fabric is an even weave linen and I was stitching over two threads. Notice the thread is all labeled, needle case loaded with a crap-ton of needles and even found the scissors with it.
When we first married I moved to New Hampshire and found a local cross-stitch store, it soon became a local place to hang-out and then I went to work one day a week, it was the best job, straighten up the shop, chat with customers and in down time you got to sit and stitch.
I'm seeing cross-stitch make a comeback and I'm itching to see if my eyes can handle the tiny stitches because I would love to finish this Rainbow Row.
I'm also wondering if I should try something a little smaller to jump back into the water like these little kits.
These little kits are so stinkin' cute ... Look what they come with
18ct White Aida Cloth,
John James Tapestry Needle,
Black & White Pattern
Illustrated Basic Cross Stitch Instructions
Just add stitching...I love that.
I won't be adding one of these kits to my queue or to-do list because I do have things I need to finish for gifts and Wooly Block Adventure but if I get them done this week I might be grabbing one of these for myself.
So tell me...do you cross stitch?
Until Next Time
