Hi folks! I'm 31-year-old guy from Montreal and a new cross stitcher. I started in December thanks to subversivecrossstitch.com and took to it at once.

I have a long history of starting creative endeavours, hitting a wall, becoming frustrated, and dropping them, so the fact that I was able to start stitching basically at once and turn out pieces that look the same in real life as in my head is truly awesome. Every day I get impatient to get back to stitching, which is a very new experience for me creative-wise. I've got two jobs and am going to university full time, so I spend a lot of time cross stitching on the metro on my way to school.

At any rate, here's my first piece (besides that first subversivecrossstitch.com kit). My mom had mentioned (before I started) that she'd always wanted this quote cross stitched, so her wish was my command -- I managed to plough through this in two days before Christmas, lol!

Here it is:

That's really cool!  It looks fantastic for a first piece too.  Smiley  I bet your Mom loved it.

I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
