When I started getting back into cross stitch it was because I was suffering from depression and I needed a hobby to distract my mind. Cross stitch fitted in with that perfectly as I could focus on counting the stitches and seeing something I was making with my own hands coming together.
At the time I picked this design as a reminder of the good things in life and stitching it really helped me. I’ve seen this phrase in so many different cross stitch designs but the colour really drew me to this one.
I liked the design around the edge but at the time I found counting out the spacing for the letters a little tricky as I hadn’t worked with full blocks of stitching before in this way.
I really like the finished product…
