    I Need To Learn To Finish A Project I Start!

    I have been cross-stitching since childhood. My grandmother first taught me by doing my initials on a hand towel, and after that, I was hooked. I tend to get a bit carried away with cross-stitching magazines and patterns that I happen across. I will buy them all gung-ho about the...

    Obsessive Stitching

    Since I was a child, I was always fascinated by patterns and shapes. Going out to dinner with the family or visiting Mom's friends had me considering the decor, wallpaper, curtains, and anything else of simple or intricate design. Shadows on the wall at bedtime wasn't scarey, but...

    I`ve been doing this for many many years. But I don't like to use store bought patterns, cuz most of them are just too... pretty or sentimentally schmaltzy. I don`t want to sew puppies and kittens either. I prefer to make up my own. I create geometric designs like mandalas a lot...
