I learned to cross stitch! It's not really difficult, just takes a shit load of time. But maybe it'll get faster when one has done more of it. The reason I learned to cross stitch was that I heard about the Subversive Cross Stitch book, and had to have it.
I am aware that the fabric is too small for the frame, but it was only in the frame for the photo. The frame has moved up to bigger and better things now.
