Kristine says:

Hi, I am from Wisconsin, USA and I’m 34 years old. I have been stitching since I was young - my mom taught me how. During college and pharmacy school I unfortunately fell away from stitching, there were just not enough hours in a day!

After graduating and starting my career as a pharmacist, I jumped back into stitching. The piece that has inspired me the most since then is Farewell To Anger by Leonid Afremov. After a falling out with my immediate family, this piece represents my husband and I walking away into the sunset together and starting our lives together. This piece brings a smile to my face every time I pick it up.

Stitching also got me through a very difficult time last summer. My step daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and unfortunately her mom abandoned her. She came to live with my husband and I and there was a lot of adjustment for all of us. Things have worked out very well and we couldn’t be happier that she finally was able to come live with us (something my husband has always wanted, just wish it were under better circumstances). 

During this time I completed a custom piece I ordered. Its a photo of cars which is a hobby my husband and I share and I was able to turn that hobby into stitching - WIN! I just find stitching an escape from the real world and love watching my beautiful pieces come to life. I have just very recently learned about Caterpillar Cross Stitch from a flosstube video and I am stitching my first stitch-a-long! Thanks for continuing my love of stitching with your fun, vibrant, colorful pieces.

The funny thing is that I started cross stitch classes when I was a teenager and I hated it. That was until last year when my mother-in-law taught me again in a simple and neat way, without knots!
