I picked this cross stitch set up at the Miffy Museum in Holland. Turns out I hate cross stitch. I found it really boring so I won't be doing this again. It took 13 hours!
I have a new admiration for anyone making big embroidery projects (well, I can do regular embroidery without getting so bored, but cross stitch just drives me mad). Anyone care to explain what you like about it? I just found it frustrating because progress was so slow. It was a good way to pass time on my bus commute but I think I'll stick to other types of embroidery from now on!
