Don't get me wrong; I am not a cheater.
I *love* my cross-stitch, but I keep finding myself day-dreaming about other needlecrafts. I've decided to try my hand at some other forms of embroidery, and see how I like them. Any new skills that I learn can only make me a better cross-stitcher, right?
I'll be checking out an embroidery class this weekend at our town's amazing local craft shop, Clay, Wood and Cotton. I'll be sure to post about the class afterwards!
And if I really like it, maybe I'll treat myself to a book about embroidery. Doodle Stitching has caught my eye and has gotten some great reviews:
Maybe my valentine will see this post and hook me up. :)
