Intresting read

I found this article today found it to be intresting especially since I am one of those stitchers then have been stitching 10+ years😝     read here

Honestly do people still appreciate receiving Christmas cards is it even worth the time anymore? I had these awesome cards made from vista print I hope they just do not go in the garbage can!

My exams are over let the stitchy fest and Christmas stuff begin!!



  1. That is a very interesting article; thanks for the link. I tell the people the same thing when I teach them to crochet.
    I love receiving Christmas cards, but it is becoming a lost tradition.
    Congratulations on finishing your exams!

  2. Congratulations on completing you exams! I really like getting Christmas cards. I keep them all and use them later in crafts. I also still make and send out about 30 cards each Christmas. Hopefully, they're appreciated, but I will continue to do it, because I enjoy it.

  3. Woohoo on the complettion of the exams!

    I've been stitching for more than 20 years, and I spent a lot of time on the internet/bulletin boards with a fairly experience, so there's not much I haven't seen/done. I've joined a few Facebook cross-stitching groups and I get jolted back when I see so many new stitchers who haven't heard about things I've been doing for 10 years (methods, specialty stitching, etc.). I always worry that they will get disenchanted with their new hobby when people get crazy gung ho on telling them rules. I don't even think the "crossing every X with the same leg on top" rule is necessarily true, too (seriously I know someone who alternated the top leg, it looked amazing, because it was consistent), and I try to let everyone know that they should relax and do what makes them happy.

    As for Christmas cards - I love them, and I'm always a little sad that I get fewer cards every year.


Thanks for commenting, I really like reading them and they make my day more enjoyable
