Seeing and touching beautiful and unique works. I use them as inpiration for my own humble projects. Being around enthusiasts for the craft keeps me motivated.
Cross-Stitch: Theresa Wentzler Peacock, Mirabela Mermaids, a Frank Lloyd Wright design, and debating on starting 20" Sq 32 ct Chatelaine Egypt Garden, wondering if I'd ever finish it in my lifetime.
Always open to new, better, and faster techniques! I have no idea what I am doing, and consider myself a total novice, but I like doing needlecrafts. I want to learn more advanced skills.
Q: What if what I know is 'out-dated' (i.e. wrong)? I have no idea. I want to see what others are doing; that is why I want to join!
I started cross-stitching & quilting after I was hit by a car and crippled for years. I needed something to do while waiting for my next doctor's appointment. My small projects gave me something marvelous to show for all that otherwise wasted time.
