Cross Stitching

My mother taught me to cross-stitch when I was 11 years old.... Almost 25 years ago. It is my most favorite thing to do. I love how those stitches form a beautiful picture when completed. I had a business stitching projects for people, but had to shut it down because I had to work full time to support my family. People took advantage of me and didn't really appreciate the hard work I put into their projects. This made me stop stitching for many years. My computer crashed and I lost all the photos I had of those projects I did. I so wish that I can show them to you. The only ones left are the most recent projects.
