Christmas Memories

Cross stitch is my first love. It was the first craft my grandmother taught me. She would get out the gingham print material and floss. She would show me how to create the giant X within the colored or white square to make my name or pattern she made up.

I have graduated to other projects since then. Many family items have been made; cross stitch initials and these stockings for my husband and myself.  Each of my children and their spouses have a similar style.

I have become particular in my choice of projects. A challenge is what I usually look for now.

Lately my head has been turning back to this craft. I have a couple projects that need finishing and it may be time to take them on. I will let you know.

    • I have two; one stocking for someone who is not around anymore and knew nothing about it. The other is a long term, solid project that there isn’t a deadline for. A resolution is not necessary.
