Nativity Counted Cross Stitch
I did not make a card today so thought I'd share a picture of one of my first pieces of counted cross stitch. Actually my first piece of counted cross stitch was for my daughter's kindergarten teacher at the end of the school year. It was a Precious Moments piece and was too intricate for my first attempt. I did manage to finish it but swore I'd never cross stitch again. When we moved to Indonesia (my daughter was in the fifth grade by then) I met a sweet friend named Edee who started me off with a simple piece and I came to love counted cross stitch! Many years and many cross stitch projects later, it got to where I couldn't see well enough to do cross stitch and watch tv as well so I had to lay it down. Not too much later, I discovered stamping and cardmaking, so it was on to another addiction! Anyhoo, hope you enjoy this nativity and the sentiment about keeping a little of the Christmas spirit for other days!!
