Working on something different…

image1

With Mother’s Day coming up I thought I would shift gears this week to work on a small gift for Mom. I used to cross stitch ALL THE TIME when I was younger. Until the quilting bug hit. My boxes of embroidery floss were in the back of a closet, but they were still there. The floss in those boxes is about 20 years old so I went out and bought new floss for this project. Muscle memory was working because I jumped right in and got to sewing with no troubles.

  1. That looks fun. Sometimes its just nice to switch gears. I was a die hard cross stitcher before the quilting bug hit too. You would think I would enjoy hand binding more.

  2. I was a cross stitcher once as well…maybe about 30 years ago. Your cross stitch is looking lovely I really like the photo.

  3. It seems a lot of us migrate from cross stitch to quilting. Your cross stitch is so neat, you have definitely retained your skills.
    Looking forward to getting to know you in the blog hop.
