I love to quilt by hand. It is so relaxing for me. But I also like to do cross stitch as well. Somehow I find that I can find order in my life when I am stitching and it is a good feeling. This is one of my cross stitch pieces, but I have many more. This is one of my patterns, but I also like to stitch other designer's patterns and that I call my "fun" stitching. Not that my own designs are not fun, but I can't seem to get the designer out of me and am constantly questioning how I can make it better. So by doing other patterns that are not my own, I seem to give my brain a rest. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, please!
