I am about to finish my first cross stitch project ever. The cross stitching is actually finished, I am just waiting for my husband to get home, as he stopped at the craft store to pick out the frame that he wants for the project. He plans to display it on his desk in his classroom.
I found that cross stitching is overall very relaxing. The most frustrating part is when the threads like to wind and twist in odd ways after having separated the large strands into smaller strands. I do wonder why if companies plan that you only need to use 2 or 3 strands at a time, why don't they produce the thread in this manner instead of having the consumer fight with easily tangled thread strands. I am looking forward to the next cross stitch project though!
