I'm a little nervous as this is my first post. Embarrassed

I taught myself crossstitch last fall as a means to relax and get my mind off work.  I thought a little manual work would be a great way to do so.

Here is my first crossstitch, from a kit I ordered online :



It isn't much but I'm rather proud of how it looks...  You don't see too many mistakes! Tongue

Thanks for looking!

HAHAHA! I'm actually watching The Little Mermaid right now!

Anyways, that aside, I think it looks wondernifferus. (That's wonderful in normal people speak). One thing I love about cross stitch is that unless your TERRIBLE at it, one or two mistakes will go unnoticed to everyone...but you of course.

Wonderful job!

I love cross-stitch.  It's a great way to destress after work.  Plus it's a great way to keep from snacking when you shouldn't.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
