  • I really like cross stitching baby quilts especially with the stamped print already on it. There are many patterns to choose from but many I've done have specific themes printed on them. It's fun to do.

  • I use to. I always made nursery blankets or throws for wedding presents. I haven't done any cross stitch since my vision began to succumb to the ravages of time. Now I have macular degeneration, so cross stitch is too difficult.

  • I LOVE counted cross stitching! Most of the things I've done in the past 30 years have been given as gifts and it's just recently that I've started doing things for myself. I've made quilt squares, towels, bookmarks, wall hangings, and pillows. I think my favorites, though, are Christmas ornaments.

  • I haven't done Counted Cross Stitch in ages. I used to do beautiful items to be framed, and I also did an entire village of Victorian Houses made from plastic canvas. (Been Crocheting and Knitting of late!)
