My cross-stitching preferences are samplers. I like to use muted colours and natural coloured fabric. I had forgotten how much I love to sit cross-stitching by an open window with a gentle breeze flowing through, listening to the radio and watching my design grow, unhurriedly, little by little. I had forgotten how much I enjoy seeing those perfectly formed little crosses turn into words and images.
I am happy to follow the crafts that I enjoy doing and am not swayed by current trends (saying that I do enjoy paper crafts but did so before it became fashionable!), although it may be that cross-stitch regains its popularity and I will be 'on trend' again.
