Hello and welcome to my blog!

Here, I will share with you my adventures in the world of cross-stitch and hopefully, other forms of needlework and embroidery as I go along. Ocassionally, maybe I’ll indulge in some other crafty endeavours too.

I find cross-stitching to be such a relaxing hobby. (But lately, I find it slightly stressful as I have to squeeze out time for it because of my hectic work schedule – the irony of it!)

As a little girl, I used to watch in awe as my mother churned out piece after piece of art. She’s not the sort who would stitch pretty little things; rather, her pieces were large ones and she always finished them beautifully into functional pieces. We had a few cross-stitched cushion covers, a cross-stitched piano throw and I even got a cross-stitched pencil case. One of the more memorable pieces she made was a pretty wedding sampler for my uncle’s wedding – that was framed up just in time the day before the wedding!

Perhaps I will try to get some photos of the pieces that are still remaining in our family home.

Do read more about me in the About section.

I would love to learn and share together with you all so feel free to get in touch at xstitchaholic [at] gmail [dot] com.

Meanwhile, happy cross-stitching!
