Cross stitching...

... 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"
ISBN-10: 4834728021
ISBN-13: 978-4834728026

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...
We'll see!

What a good try.
The first picture impressed me that it's a bookmark. :D
