Who knew there was a World Cross Stitch Day? I certainly didn’t but I’m happy there is. I’ve recently picked this hobby up again and have to say that I’m loving it just as much as I did when I was younger. When my girls were young, I cross-stitched a lot. It was so relaxing to stitch while they were napping or in bed for the night. I think when I discovered stamping, cross-stitch went by the wayside. Now that I’m recently retired, I have more time to enjoy both hobbies.
So in honor of this day, I created a card combining both stamping and cross-stitch.
This is such a cute stamp and die set from Neat and Tangled: Handstitched. The embroidery hoop was perfect to create a shaker card, which are always fun! Even the sentiment looks stitched. I pulled some paper from my stash that had tiny x’s for a sweet background.
I’m playing along with this month’s Flower Challenge HERE…
Here a quick look at my most current completed cross-stitch project. Obviously, it’s not completely finished as I’m still trying to figure out how I would like to display it. I love vintage Halloween decorations and this reminded me of that.
Thanks for stopping by today to learn about my other hobby (i.e. passion). I would love to hear about any additional hobbies you enjoy.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend,
