Handmade-55Creative Bucket List

This piece is my first attempt at cross stitch and is dated 1990. It was on my “Creative Bucket List”. You know…..do it so you can cross it off the list. So cross stitch started, cross stitch finished!

My third child was a new baby when I worked on this. It was like a little bit of quiet here and there in the midst of the turmoil of life with three children under 5.

When it was finished, I was captivated by its old world charm. It deserved an old frame. This one was from the 1920s or 1930s so it was perfect!

Have I done any more cross stitch? No. But I may. It is such a measured craft and I find it very calming.
