One of my aunts put together a cross-stitch kit for a birthday present when I was a young teenager. I discovered my love for x-stitching with the first stitch! I just couldn't stop!!!
But beware: x-stitch is VERY time consuming. You think "I'll just finish this little patch"...and over an hour later you look at the clock and think, "Oh my goodness! Where did the time go!!!!! LOL It's a relaxing hobby though...and they're so cute! :)
I still have to frame this one. But I'm a little clueless as to what colours to use when matting. Can someone help me out -- I'm thinking a light colour...maybe off-white...or tan???
