    Beautiful, I made 3 baby quilts for my grandchildren and vowed never to do this again......It took me so long and I didn't enjoy doing it, Love things that go fast......so I appreciate people that do this, and how beautiful they are........... :) :)

    They are beautiful! I started with embroidery, then crocheting as a teen, moved into cross stitching as a young adult, then later making my clothes; however, once the quilting bug bit me in my early 30's that is all that I take the time to do!! I do enjoy seeing all the other crafts and have returned to embroidery while doing my crazy quilt patches!!

    Thanks for sharing. You are tempting me since I still have my supplies and patterns!!!!! :)

    Oh Wow....you have lots of work into those crosstitch projects. I used to do that but never really did any big projects like yours! Don't really see good enough to do it now. Your pieces are so nice!

    Oh my, a friend of mine use to do that and it amazes me how small and intricate those designs can be, yet so precise. Beautiful job.

    I love your cross stitch pictures. I used to do alot of them, but haven't seen a pattern that really trips my trigger lately. I absolutely love to use metallic threads and beads in mine. Think I'll have to get out my cross stitch and go again.

    Beautiful work! I had to quit cross stitching when the nerve damage in my thumbs got really bad. I may just have to give it a go again.

    Thanks, Everyone! I love to do it, it's so relaxing and it's something to do when I don't feel like hunching over my sewing machine or in the winter when I just want to curl under a blanket.

    I like the designs that stitch easy as I feel like I can get them done quicker. I do have a few latest that I haven't taken pictures of yet.

    There really is no skill involved - if you know how to count and can make x's with thread you're good to go! Craft stores usually have some learn to stitch kits which are really quite cute.

    Here are a few more:

    Wow, I love your work. Your stitches are so nice and neat. I love cross-stitching too, it was my first love.

    Those are nice. I used to cross stitch before my vision went downhill. It's a relaxing hobby!
