Cross Stitching is both relaxing and rewarding
I am amazed at the cross-stitch projects I have seen people make. Some simple to complete intricate works of art.
I remember my mother and my grandmother teaching me how to cross stitch when I was in elementary school. It all starts with an “x”. Simple patterns and multi-colored embroidery thread. I remember the hues of colors and wanting the brightest rainbow thread available even if I didn’t have a project for it.
The art of cross stitch is centuries old
The simple art of needle work and creating imagery in cloth that has been passed down generation by generation. Hidden in a box somewhere in the attic I have a Ukrainian folk art outfit with black and red cross stitch designs. I always loved the simplicity and beauty of that pattern. No matter the country you live in or your age you have seen and can enjoy the simplistic and elegant art form of cross stitch.
