Treasures - Cross Stitch

It's been 10 years since I last picked up my needle and cross-stitched.  Not sure why I stopped, I'd been stitching for 30 odd years and remember the very first kit I purchased in a little store in Bath, England when I still lived there.  It was an initial A with a girl draped down one side.  If I find it in all my boxes to be unpacked, I will post a photo soon.

Anyway, I have stitched so many things over the years, for me...for our house...for the kids...for friends and family.  Wedding announcements, birth announcements, new home, birthdays, name it, I have probably cross-stitched it at some time. I even did a few of my own designs.

Because we moved into our new home a month ago, have a wedding to plan next year and recently lost our little toy poodle of 15 years, I wanted to start something new.  A family tree.

This is an old Dimensions kit I had not opened, can't remember if I purchased it, or my Mum sent it to me years ago.  I usually find the centre of the fabric, centre stitch and start from there...working my way up to the top...then down to the bottom.  I will post some pictures as I progress.

So what are you stitching right now?  Comment below and let me know.

Have a fabulous weekend!
