Sail Away to Cross Stitching

I know there is not much to see here, but this is an exciting day. I have done a little cross stitching! It has been at least a few years since I have been inspired to do any of this. Cross stitching was my first serious hobby (obsession). Then I discovered quilting and my focus shifted. I still like to cross stitch, just didn't have the time. Wonder if that had anything to do with all of the shopping to grow the fabric stash? Well, I saw this Shepherd's Bush pattern - Sail Away and I really was drawn to it. I got the kit for this for my birthday, COOL and thanks Mom. I can't wait to see how the beautiful rows unfold.

Happy almost Friday quilty friends.

Sweet little kit. I was a serious counted cross stitcher at first, too. Just like quilting, I still have a few projects in the works. Keep us posted on this project's progress.

Shepherd's Bush designs were always my favorites when I was cross-stitching...I need to return to that. In fact, I got some new supplies after Christmas (cuz where are the old supplies?). Very nice!

Oh dear, that snow looks beautiful but very very cold. Brr.

Now cross-stitching I can just about manage. Quilting is a distant dream for me.

Oh I love this design. :) You've made a wonderful start - I look forward to seeing more of your progress.

I've been admiring all your quilting too. This is one craft I've always wanted to try, but haven't managed to yet. Your pieces are an absolute inspiration, as is your blog.
