Hello everyone! Here is a blogpost that I am sharing with Madame Samm of Sew we Stitch.
I have been doing cross stitch all my life, ever since I was a kid. My Grandmother Ariadne showed me how and we had a teacher at Primary School who showed us some too. I haven't stopped stitching since then. I am a slow stitcher but I tried to make a few things over the years. As I had photos taken with an old type film camera lots of my work is on paper still that I haven't yet managed to make digital. So I started taking photos inside my home of all the framed pieces I have made over the years. So here are some of my cross stitched pieces from childhood till 2009. I am working on making another file and blogpost with the more recent ones.
