Be inspired: Cross stitching

Hi, I hope you're all having a great Summer.

Today's "Be inspired" is all about the art of cross stitching and at KCAA we're lucky to have some very talented people who often share with us their cross stitch projects as you can see below.

The 1st set of pictures shows some of Pam's work and the 2nd a sample of Mrs Dag's embroidery. Aren't they just beautiful?

Some of these projects have taken a long time to finish but are so well worth the effort when they're finally done and ready to be shown off.

If you're new to cross stitching and would like to give it a go, have a look at the useful links below.
