A little bit overdue, but here it is: an update on the cross stitch challenge I set up for myself.
Love it or hate it, Valentines Day is coming up next week. It’s looking like I will be single for Valentines Day this year (not that it’s really that important to me anyway). I’m pretty sure I’ll be spending the night working because #worklife. Anyways, I’m here to write about a craft that I made last year for my partner at the time.
If you’re looking for an easy gift for your special someone, try this one out!
Admittedly, my cross stitch hobby has taken a backseat to other priorities in my life over the past few months. This blog being one of those priorities. But now that it’s up and running, I’ve decided that it’s time to get back into it. To keep my inspiration up, I’m challenging myself to complete one cross stitch every month. It might not seem like much, but I just don’t have the time to stay home and stitch for hours on end. So one completed piece in a month should be doable. I even created a tag for it so that you (and I) can keep track of how I’m doing at the beginning and end of the month. In the words of Barney Stinson, challenge accepted!

A little over six months ago, I took up the hobby of cross stitching. I had a couple friends who had crafty hobbies (knitting, perlers, etc.) and I was inspired to take up something crafty myself. So I started cross stitching. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest and Youtube looking up tutorials. Since March, I’ve stitched up about 25 pieces and I’ve learned something new with almost every single one. Feel free to check out my finished work on Instagram. While there is still plenty to learn, here I am going to share some things I wish I knew when I started cross stitching.
