    I do! I do! I love cross stitch - I've been doing it for 23 years.

    And you?

    I have done a lot of counted cross stitch, and have several pieces hanging around the house. Shephard's Bush are favorite patterns of mine.

    Lately though (okay, a year is lately, right?) I haven't touched it. Between quilting and paper crafts (I'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, although will be quitting as soon as current club is done), I just haven't had time.

    A lot of mine used to get done at night when I couldn't sleep. We didn't have decent computer hookup, and although we have basic cable, there really isn't much on. So I'd do counted cross stitch as it forced me to focus on something other than my worries.

    I've done quite a bit. There's a couple charities I found on the internet that take donated XS blocks and combine them into quilts for kids. Have to say I haven't done much XS since I discovered quilting. LOL I can't manage both right now.

    I used to cross stitch all the time too. Loved working the Lavender N lace and Butternut road patterns. since I started working outside the home and have had shoulder issues I haven't stitched in a while. I do plan to pick it up again!!!!
