Tiny Needle Tuesday

I’ve wanted to join in on Dee’s tiny needle Tuesday for a while. You may not know it, but cross-stitching was actually my first craft. Long before I knit or sewed, I cross-stitched. I started when I was around 8 or 9 years old. Mom had taken me to the Creativ Festival in Toronto. They had a bunch of workshops for kids, one of which was cross-stitching (using worsted weight yarn on something like 8-count cloth). That lit the bug and soon enough it became a hobby. I wouldn’t say I was a prolific cross-stitcher (My attention span was too short for that), but I made a fair few little projects over the years.

Not too long ago, Dad asked me to pick up a box of stuff I’d left behind when I moved out (12 years ago now).

This was one of the things inside.


If I remember correctly, this was done as part of a project for 4-H. (One of the other things in the box, was my completion plaque for the 4-H group I took part in.) I’m going to have to hang it in my studio now…

And maybe pull out my cross-stitching supplies….

    Awwww…..that’s so sweet! I used to stitch a lot when the kids were little. I liked making baby things to hang in their room.

    So sweet. I still have two counted cross stitch projects from the 80s that I just can’t part with. Will be interesting to see if you start a counted cross stitch project.
