For the past few months I’ve been trying out a new hobby. I have become completely enamoured with cross stitch. My mum tried to get me into cross stitch when I was younger, but I was never motivated to ever start anything. Something must have happened in those 14 years, because I find the craft so enjoyable and relaxing now. I managed to complete my first little cross stitch earlier last week (pictured below) and have a large piece in the works at the moment.
I got the pattern for my cross stitch from SewHappyCrossStitch on Etsy. If any of you are interested in getting started with cross stitch I suggest checking out Bothy Threads or cherrylanedesigns on YouTube for instructions for beginners. Hopefully this inspires you to try something new. Who knows? You might find your new favourite hobby.
