Learn To Do Counted Cross Stitch
Before I started collecting gemstones, and then learning to make jewelry, I did counted cross stitch. I forgot how much I love it. I came across a whole bunch of them that I never actually finished and whole bunch I did but then never made into final pieces such as pillows. So I started working on them and trying what to do with them all. You simply can not frame them all, and I am not sure I want to sell them. So if anyone has creative ideas for clever things to do with finished counted cross stitch designs, I am all ears. I will share some of my finished pieces in a later post. I haven't taken pictures of any yet. I usually do only big projects. If you want to learn how to do counted cross stitch the video is very nice and helpful. I find it very relaxing, and a way to clear my mind of all other things.
