Fam­ily stitch

Cross Stitch Crazy - - Exclusivedesign -

I just wanted to share my lat­est fin­ish with you. I was taught to stitch over 20 years ago by a fam­ily friend who turned 60 re­cently, so I used charts from past is­sues of Crazy to cre­ate a spe­cial gift for her. She’s now a quil­ter, so I com­bined the two crafts be­fore fram­ing the fin­ished piece. This is the first time I’ve com­bined aida with another fab­ric, and I’m re­ally pleased with the re­sult! My kids wanted to get in the pic­ture as well when I was tak­ing it. My two boys love stitch­ing and both are work­ing on their own projects – a few stitches at a time! I hope you like it, Crazy team. Lorna Smith, Hamp­shire Ali­son says: You put a lot of thought into this gift, Lorna. It’s a fit­ting present for the wo­man who gave you your love of stitch­ing! And now you’re shar­ing that pas­sion with your lit­tle boys. It’s so in­spir­ing when stitch­ing is handed down through the gen­er­a­tions like this. Great job!
