Cross stitching is very pleasurable. I was under 20 years old when I first tried it and I made many, many cross stitch items since that day. Doing the X is very simple and all you have to do is follow the pattern. That may seem quite boring, but as an image appears gradually, X after X after X, it becomes addictive.
With Spring around the corner (hopefully sooner than later), I started to think about Easter. I went to Pinterest and made a few searches about Easter pictures. I saw a few Beatrix Potter drawings and that made me think about my cross-stitched carrots. They were in a box, with other unfinished projects. I made them a few years ago, following a pattern from my favorite cross stitch magazine, Le Idee di Susanna. It’s an Italian magazine and I have a pile of it. I still don’t know what I’ll do with them. Maybe I will quilt an orange border and frame them. But I’m not sure about that… Any suggestions?
