Whilst X stitch is my main thing, I have also been playing with Embroidery again which orginally led me to X stitch. Embroidery incorporated with Ribbon Embroidery.
This led me to making a Tape measure cover, another piece of bling for my work box. I am really pleased at how this turned out, and fully intend to take up Embroidery on a more permanent basis. Whilst X stitch will always be important to me, it doesn't hurt to deviate occasionally and try something new.
