Cross Stitch

Back in the olden days, before I had children, I used to cross stitch up a storm.  Then I discovered quilting and mostly everything else has fallen by the wayside.  Do you find that?

I do love a bit of cross stitch but find right now the constant 'mummmmmm' I hear about every three minutes destroys my concentration, and I end up making too many mistakes.  So for now, it's taken a little bit of a back seat.  I will go back to it.  I do love it.

I dug out some photos of some of the (many) projects I have stitched over the years.  Hope you enjoy them.

I should get back to it before my eyesight goes!

Way too many cross stitch UFO's on that list. 

Talk to you soon!



  1. Gorgeous pieces! I love a bit of cross stitch too but can't do it now as my hands get too sore from arthritis. Maybe you could do a little when the kids are asleep. I am sure it wont be long before you can get back to it at least a little.

  2. Thankyou Jan-Maree!

    I do enjoy cross stitch, it was always my first love. But since children, I just cant seem to focus on it.

    But you're right - when I'm not so tired, when every one sleeps through the night, when there is a little more time - I'll jump right back into it!

    Thanks again
