Hope you enjoyed A Crafty Commute Day on 1 December!
Recently I heard cross stitch described as the ultimate handbag craft. With that endorsement, how could we not feature cross stitch as an ‘on the go’ project.

2. Choose good quality thread (floss)
3. Use a size 24 tapestry . . . → Read More: Cross Stitch On the Go
