X is for x-stitching. Or Cross-stitching if we want to be exact.
Cross stitching is an form of sewing where the stitches cross each other to form X's.
As with crochet I did learn somewhere in my childhood but it never really took my fancy, I used to be a book and drawing girl more than a craft girl, but in 2010 when my friend E2 was sewing I felt like I wanted to have another go at it, and here I am in the sofa with E2 stitching away in the summer of 2010 according to the date on the photo. I had bought a child kit with a cat for my start but soon ventured into more difficult patterns.
And here I am teaching my two cousins to sew, neither of them are craft girls but more book girls, but later they might find that they want to do some sort of craft like I did.
I lost my stitching bug for a some time while I crocheted but I have found it now and am trying to finish off some of my started things... And I must say that even though it is a craft that takes a while to finish I am quite enjoying it again.
Later I started to design some of my own patterns and here are a few of my designs, I don't make many but I have made some, my goal in life is to make more and perhaps someone will stitch what I have design. ^^
Star Trek Enterprise TOS
Kokeshi dolls of W group
Christmas bunny sampler
Halloween, set of four
Happy Easter in Norwegian

Do you cross stitch? Have you tried to design anything?
What would you like to stitch if there was a pattern?
My favorite thing to stitch must be bunnies, but I guess that wasn't hard to guess.
Oh, and this is my 555th post, so I am hosting a giveaway on Sunday if you want to hang around after the a-z series^^
