I used to do a lot of cross stitch as well. Then I went to work and have had some bad shoulder problems. I hope to be able to cross stitch again someday.
I really liked working on the Lavender and Lace Victorian Angels and ladies. I have about 15 of them done on 32 ct linen and have a bunch more of her patterns I want to do.

I cross stitch, knit, and sometimes make cards and crochet.

I've done quite a few L&L designs too - I used to sell the patterns in my shop, so stitched out the designs to show potential customers. I have also knitted, spun, crocheted, painted, you name it. I have done canvas work embroidery, minature carpet making for my dolls house, plus making furniture for it. I used to teach bobbin and needle lace too, but most of those I put to one side 10 years ago when I arrived here in favour of quilting. I began quilting in the 60's but the UK had very little available at the time, so it got put to one side.

I do all sorts of crafts from crocheting, knitting, cross stitch, needlepoint, and candle carving. Here are just a few pictures of my candles.

I love to cross stitch and crochet. I learned to knit about a year ago and made my first pair of baby booties, and sweater for my grandson. It took me so long to finish them, now I knit sweaters for a charity that sends them around the world to any children who needs them.

I used to do all kinds of crafts and sold my stuff in Craft Fairs. I quit all that when I had to go back to work about 9 years ago.
