I ordered the Winterwoods Sampler from Posie Gets Cozy a little while ago, along with a couple of hoops and needles. I did some cross-stitch when I was a kid, but haven’t done it in years – this sampler just spoke to me though! I started it over the long weekend (Victoria Day here) and have been completely obsessed. Some days I didn’t even knit! The only downside for me is that it’s a bit messy what with the threads and chart and everything – I’m used to just plopping down on the couch with a ball of yarn.
It’s just so pleasing. I do have a couple of small mistakes (missed a space, crossed the wrong way) but that’s okay. I’m over half done, so I need to start looking for a nice frame!
I love cross-stitch too! I haven’t done it in a while, but every now and then I hanker for one of these projects. So cute!
This makes me want to get out my x stitch supplies which I’ve squirreled away from the late 1990’s – purchased at Nordic Needle in Fargo, ND. So sweet, and a nice change when you lose your knitting mojo!
Oh, it’s years since I have cross-stitched or embroidered, too. Recently I came across a cross-stitch pattern of Ponyboy from the Outsiders and I’ve been thinking that I might have to dig out my DMC floss, as well!
I periodically go through phases where I don’t feel like knitting, and cross stitch is always my fall back craft. I bought several cute charts on etsy a few months back – I really should start on one of the patterns, even though I’m knitting a lot again.
So sweet! I haven’t done it since I was a kid either. I was never very good and never liked the patterns, but this… this is nice. Maybe I shall try it again.
If you want some stitching with a funky modern edge, check out Sublime Stitching. Very cool
So cute! You’re inspiring me to dig out my abandoned alphabet sampler that I started earlier this spring.
Great crossstitch I’ve done a few in my time. Maybe it’s time to get one out again:)
LOVE IT! I may have to order the same sampler kit, too cute!!
I’m working on that too! I love it!!!
