and welcome to my blog or diary, this is my first attempt so its trial and error so please bare with me and feel free to post any comments or suggestions. I love to cross stitch, I love starting a new project. Choosing the pattern, searching for the perfect fabric, hunting out the lovely threads, the excitement of starting the sewing and then never quite getting a finish.... well I have some smaller finishes, the bigger ones are sort of well now they are relegated to my UFO pile. I have recently invested in a sewing machine so that I can finish my cross stitch in cushions, wall hangings etc. So far I have practiced by making my son a set of simple cushions in Dr Who fabric. Not quite brave enough to try with my cross stitch yet.
