I have been doing counted cross-stitch for about 20 years. I love it too. It is my favorite thing to do. I just finished a small ornament and am trying to decide what my next project will be! My hubby and son got my two new projects for Christmas. It is like therapy for me. Do you feel that way too?

I am a newbie when it comes to cross stitch. I just started doing it about 2 months ago and I absolutely love it! It is so relaxing for me. I am working on one called hearth and home right now and it is coming along pretty well. I also have one that I am in the middle of but am not working on at the moment called wedding sampler. I am lookiing for a harley davidson pattern. Does anyone know where I can find one?

I received my Herrschners after Christmas sale catalog a few days ago. I have been drooling over it ever since. I want everything. I carefully narrowed my choices down to a few I couldn't live without! I placed my order today. I will be waiting patiently for the postman to bring me my goodies. I ordered a bunch of ornaments to do for next year. I also ordered a quilling kit and quilling tools. I have never done this craft. It looks cute in the catalog and the price was right so I thought I would give it a try.

Is anyone familiar with quilling?

Glad to meet a fellow x-stitcher! I don't have the pattern you are looking for. You might try http://123stitch.com/

They have a great selection to order from and they also have a message board where people post what they are looking for and they buy, sell, trade, etc. Just click on kits and patterns and go to the religious section. If you don't see what you want to order there is a place at the bottom where you can enter special requests. Good luck in your search.

Decided to treat myself to a day of x-stitching. Oh sure there are plenty of things I need to be doing but I decided a day of therapy was needed before I hurt someone.

I started a new piece today. It is a Christmas design. (getting a jump on next year I hope). It is a wicker basket filled with teddy bears, bows and greenery. Very cute. It seems to be working up quickly. It was a kit and the floss was a real pain to sort and seperate They don't have to make it so difficult!

What is everyone else working on?

I got my order from Herrschners and I am very pleased with what I got. Now if I can just make myself finish the one I have started before I start a new one! Does anyone else have this problem?
