I've recently taken up cross stitch. Even typing that sentence made me feel old and cringe a little. But, I have found an array of quirky and funny cross stitch patterns online and I'm hooked!!
Here's my first large piece I made for my best friends nursery
The second piece I made wasn't from a pattern, I drew a simple outline and made it up as I went along. This was a custom request.
I also recently finished this one for my bathroom. I would credit the original pattern creator if I knew who it was by. Sorry!
So my stitches might not be perfect but I'm still very much a beginner. It's so nice to just sit alone, with some music on and zone out from kids, cleaning or anything else that I need a break from.
Do you have any hobbies outside of work, blogging etc?
