    My other passion

    Counted Cross Stitch is my other passion besides quilting. I do knit and crochet but nothing compares to the cross stitch. Here are a few of my faves.
    I was tickled when my winter welcome banner was put on the Stoney Creek cross stitch website for the month that I sent it in.
    What other crafts do you enjoy??

    Beautiful work! I really like the Natve Angel! I was going through some boxes and came across a sack from an estate sale that had crewel and cross stitch in it. They're kits. I need to work on them or have them in a go bag when I go with DH to his office. I also enjoy hand embroidery. Just don't do enough of it. Out of sight out of mind! Need to put it back in sight!

    I use to enjoy cross stitching but maybe with my new glasses I can get back to it. I have this hanging in my bathroom:

    beautiful work. I too love counted cross stitch, but due to failing vision, I can't do it anymore.
    i'm hoping for a surgery in November for renewed vision. I too crochet and knit a little bit.
    but sewing is my heart. thanks for sharing your work with us.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I have to save these beautiful works for my DD. She does counted cross stitch and has given us some beautiful gifts.

    I do counted cross-stitch too! It's my go-to craft in the evenings watching TV, when I don't feel like working on a big quilting project. So relaxing, and easy to put down and pick up! Your pics are beautiful!

    I'm so jealous. I wish I could cross stitch that nice. Beautiful work.

    I used to cross stitch all the time but now my hands can't do all that work. I don't even do binding by hand anymore, I do it all by machine.

    Love them all! I used to use counted cross stitch patterns to do needlepoint. And I love the little ornament kits - I made tons back in the early 90's. Bought a few a couple years ago, I need to dig them out and get them done.

    Your cross stitch is lovely! I like hand embroidery but the old hands are not very good at it any more. I really love quilting...

    I envy your cross stitch talent. I've not ever thought of trying that. I do a lot of other crafts. I used to do a lot of flower arrangements. Now I love button art, and have been framing jerseys for my son.

    I really miss doing counted crossstitch, use to do it all the time before I got started on quilting. Had to give it up when my eyesight couldn't see even to do 14-count. Thought that after I had cataract surgery that I would be able to do it again, but it didn't help. Bummer.
    You have done really nice things. Love the winter welcome banner.

    I can only do cross stitch with the patterns printed on fabric.

    Those are all very pretty! I love counted cross stitch too, take it by spells, recently started one for my youngest son getting married later this year. Here's one that I did a few years back, actually did this one twice! Once for a nephew, then again for my oldest son!http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ve-t87670.html
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Beautiful! Used to cross stitch but I find I'm doing more crocheting than quilting lately. MQ2, I just love your bathroom wallhanging, so cute!

    I love the look of counted cross stitch but I cannot do it. My eyes just don't track well across the fabric. Too much eye strain for me.
