... for the first time in my life.
Cross stitching looked a bit intimidating at first, but I was wrong. I think it was a lot more simple than (regular) embroidering, and it was such a soothing act to handstitch many many "x"s using a needle and thread.
I stitched on to this cross stitching tape that I got from my friend.
She was generous enough to give me more than 2 yards of this beautiful tape.
Thank you, friend!
The cross stitch designs are from this Japanese embroidery book.
"Small Embroidery from Scandinavia"
Now, I need to decide what to make from this small cross stitched project.
Whether it be a small sachet or a pincushion? Or even a small bag...
