Cross stitching, anyone??




Early this month, I took back my long due cross stitch which I did not manage to finish up. This cross stitch design has been due for more than 5 years. I think it was before I met my hubby. Yeah, it is how long it has been in the shelf. Even its needle has turned rusty and cannot be used. Lol!

Cross stitching used to be my past time hobby besides reading and listening to radio. Honestly I am not good with drawing. Never been an A student in arts class, and I hated arts class. I am not an imaginative person although I do admire a good painting when I see one. So, cross stitching is my art.

I love sceneries so all my cross stitch designs are sceneries with waterfalls or streams and mountains.

I planned to complete this cross stitch design probably after I deliver and if by then, I have yet to secure a job. The old people said it is not good for preggies to touch needles and sewing during pregnancy, so I guess I will do it after that. Lol! It just left the bottom part. I stopped stitching as some threads are out and I never really get to buy the threads then. So I aim to have it done by end of this year and have it framed. I done 2 other designs and both are hung at my parents’ house. Those two are nicer and bigger than this one. Probably that was the reason I determined to complete those two than this design! *laugh*
