I love just about any craft, needlework or sewing, but cross stitch is truly one of my favorites. I started cross stitching when I was about 12 years old. I loved it then, and I still love it now, but admittedly, the projects are a lot more advanced now than they were when I was a child.

I always have at least one cross stitch project in the works. I usually have one that I work on at home and on that I carry with me when I travel.
