A - Z Challenge 2016
X is for ... X-stitch (AKA Cross Stitch)
Which is something I love to do and have done since 1999!!!
|Just stitchin the day away!!|
I 'found' my lovely hobby in a shop called Woolworths!
I saw a gorgeous Winnie-The-Pooh picture on the from of a plastic box, which had paper, threads and a needle inside!! I looked at this funny looking things for a while and put it back on the shelf thinking 'I can't do that!'
Well, I thought about this funny looking thing all for a while, then I went back to Woolworths and bought it!!
It took me nearly 5 hours to read and understand the instructions and sort the threads into the correct colour piles lol
Oh my, oh my, oh my I have never looked back since!! I was totally hooked from that day on!! It took me a whole week to finish this little picture! I think I was at it for about 12 hours a day lol!
|My first ever X-Stitch :D|
It is however looking a little worse for wear in the frame!!
X is also for ... xstitchchick ... which is what my Twitter name is! Very fitting I think!
I hope you like this post and it made you smile!
