    I know we've had threads on cross stitching before but I thought it might be fun to have a new one where we can share photos of our work, chat and swap ideas. It could be a chatter thread too.

    I'd like to meet some fellow stitchers on here so get posting and sharing if you are!! :)

    Cool, I would love to see others' work on here! I cross stitched ONE picture of three balloons when I was maybe ten. Haven't done anything of the sort since! But when I'm done with college it might be nice to pick back up!

    I love cross-stitching and do some most evenings. When I work it out how to do it I will post some photos.

    Hi! I was just going to start up doing cross stitch again. Haven't really had much time, since going back to work after maternity leave, but decided I really want to make time to, well, make something! :) Would be great to have a place to show off I've done and see what others have done as well...plus it might motivate me to actually get back into it again!!

    I started a cross stitch 2 years ago and just haven't had the time to finish it, I used to finish them in a week and sell them on ebay but since having my youngest 2 children my time is split between kids and housework, I think I will dig it out and get cracking on with it

    Haha, I know, I can spend hours wanting something naughty to eat but not wanting to tear myself away from my stitching so usually the craving goes off :D

    Looking forward to seeing some of your work too :) xx

    I've just started doing cross stitch again. Used to love it but hadn't done one for several years. I've just started a lovely picture of Cleopatra. However, it has some gold threads which look lovely but are an absolute pig to work with. The metallic gold bits somehow get tangled all the time and I keep getting seperate yellow bits within the thread where the gold has moved away from the yellow thread underneath! Any suggestions for working with gold thread greatly appreciated!
