Chooky Blue had the great idea for a bloggers cross stitch display over the weekend. I’ve been needing a bit of a push to start blogging more consistently so I thought I would join in. I haven’t done any cross stitch for years, but I used to quite enjoy it although I only ever did cross stitch on Aida cloth and never on linen. (I think I would have gone blind trying to cross stitch on linen) I still have quite a collection of threads from those days but now I prefer to use it in simple stitchery projects although I would still love to make a cross stitch sampler one day (one for the bucket list maybe).
Most of the cross stitch I made were pictures which were framed and given away, although one Christmas I made little lavender bags, which were quick and easy to make, I remember I made them all while on night shift when I was in the RNZAF and I kept this one for myself.
I think I still have the diagrams for this butterfly one stashed away somewhere, I made this when I lived in Singapore
