Cross stitch is another craft I picked up lately. It's so much easier to carry around in my handbag and do some while waiting 20 minutes for the train or while having a coffee in a coffee shop. I found that is even nice to make some stitches while in bed, just before going to sleep. Since it doesn't require to much brain work it sends me to sleep nice and relaxed.

This is one of my first projects. I made it for my friends wedding that happened last month. I wanted to make something special for them but I didn't have to much time on my hand or motivation as I was in the moving house mode. So one week before their wedding I was looking on the internet for ideas and I came across this cool website where they have lots of free patterns. Here is the link to the pattern. I added their wedding date and initials to personalise it.

The end result was meant to be in a nice frame but I was so busy, didn't have any time to buy one. So around 12 o'clock, on the night before the wedding, few hours before the flight (the wedding was in Turkey), I had to make up a frame for it. So, half asleep, I took a hard backing card, few bits of paper, a hole-punch and a ribbon and came out with this.

I'm quite pleased with the result taking in account little time I had. And I think my wedded friends were pleased too.
