I learned to cross-stitch while I was in high school and have loved doing it over the years, but crochet has become my favorite hobby of late since it is easier to carry around (I crocheted this dishcloth while playing the waiting game at the doctor's office on Saturday) and I don't need reading glasses to work with hook and yarn.
While my friend, Mona, was here, she introduced me to 8 count aida that I had not used before. Below is my first stitching with yarn and a big embroidery needle. The perfect blending of my two favorite crafts.
It's not always easy to find time for crafting during the week, but I just have to remind myself that even something small is an accomplishment.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
