I always say "I am never going to do any more cross stitch" and then I find another pattern I like. By the time I finish the piece I'm saying "I am never going to do another cross stitch". Guess what? I have found another pattern I like. It is by a young designer who has a company called "Modern Folk" and there are some interesting posts on his blog.
I like this one about his trip to Sweden.
He also has a pattern shop where you can buy his patterns as instant downloads. I have fallen for a couple of Xmas patterns that I would like to stitch for my grand daughters.
But then I like this one as well.
I know at the end of this I am going to say "I never want to do cross stitch again."
