    Beginner

    Went on a road trip to North Carolina and a friend introduced me to cross stitching. I was quick to dismiss it... "That's so girly." Continuing on the trip, I saw a 2 dollar cross stitching activity in a Cracker Barrel... this is where the addiction began. I feel like I'm a rare...

    I'm addicted to this kit.

    It's a beautiful warm toned woman in kimono, my first big project. I just can't stop working on it. It's been several days now and I'm slow but doing well it seems so far. A little proud of myself too I must admit.
