cross stitch

Sorry that I haven't written in my blog in a little while. I was in Portland, Oregon last week and I did not take my computer with me. I definitely am trying to write more in here so I plan on blogging about my Portland trip sometime soon.

Anyways, I wanted to write a post about my latest crafty adventure. So, I don't know exactly why I started getting into crafting. Maybe it was pinterest or my sister-in-laws or just whatever. Whatever the reason, I have definitely become more interested in creating things and learning how to do creative things.

Last year, I was shopping at a local craft store and I came upon a little christmas cross stitch. I went ahead and bought it because I thought it would be fun to do and it only cost a couple of dollars. I looked at it a few times throughout this past year but I wasn't sure exactly where to begin. Just recently, I got together with some friends to have a crafting night. I decided to bring along my cross stitch. I worked on it a little bit there and finished the rest at home. At times, I looked on YouTube to explain more about how a certain stitch was done.

Here is my finished project:

All in all, I really enjoyed doing a cross stitch and I have already bought another one to do. I can't wait to get started on it.


  1. I like this cross stitch and I can't wait to see the next one!

  2. I've been crosstitching off and on since I was in 4th grade. I had a teacher that taught us and I loved it. I've done some really large pieces and given them as gifts.

  3. I'm so impressed! I've never tried crosstitching. I'm sure you can refer to that infertility crosstitch I put on my blog awhile back if you need some inspiration, haha. Anyway, I'm proud of you for dominating a new craft skill!!
