Thousands of stitches!

by CindyW » Sat Feb 25, 2017 3:21 am

Hello all! I'm a retired office worker and am enjoying having enough time to get back to cross-stitching! Since Christmas I've completed two Christmas stockings and two small samplers (not to mention a crocheting a couple of baby blankets). I have a love/hate relationship with complex patterns. I sometimes think I pull out more stitches than I put in, especially when I'm first starting a design! What makes life wonderful is the lovely stand my father-in-law built that allows me to use both hands to stitch. I work the needle in my left hand for the top and my right hand for the bottom. The stand also holds my pattern so it's easy to see!

I love to talk about my hobby (addiction), so I look forward to getting to know all of you! :ratherbe:

Thanks for the warm welcomes! I'll have to post more comments before I can start a gallery, if I correctly understand the rules correctly. :D

You need to have 10 posts before you can start a gallery, but you can post pictures into a thread once you become a member, so if you are thinking of showing us pictures of your work, you can start any time you want to! The Stitch-A-Long section is where you find those threads.
