One of the most enjoyable parts of blogging for me is being able to meet people with whom I have so much in common. Yesterday’s post on the sickness of pregnancy certainly brought this into focus, but on a much more casual level, through the blog I have met other cross stitch lovers–and that is so fun.
Cross stitch might be one of my favorite pastimes. It is so easy, stress-free and I can do it while watching TV, because I don’t know about you, but I can never JUST sit and watch TV. I always feel like I have to be doing something as well. In fact, when the weekend rolls around and I know my husband and I will likely be watching a movie at some point I go a little nuts if I don’t have a little hand-project to work on. It’s silly, but having something just this side of mindless to work on with my hands makes me a better companion. I can actually relax and give up 2 full hours to sitting in front of the television.
And so, here is the fun little project I worked on this weekend. It is simple, easy and I am excited to hang it in my house after we are done with Lent–because of course this is the word we all avoid saying this time of year!
I’m into these modern fonts right now, so I wanted to use that for the pattern. The pattern is totally free. I designed the pattern using only black and white thread, but you can of course use something more colorful and “springy”.
You can find the materials for this project, and MANY other Catholic projects in the Catholic Family Digital Resource Library. To get instant access, and join a thriving community of over 10,000 Catholic Parents, just enter your in your email address.
So, if you too long to have a little project to work on while spending time taking in a movie, here you go!
I am already scheming my next project, so that I can once again sit and have some quality time with my husband this weekend.
All the best, and if you’d like, here are a few more Easter projects I’ve shared in previous years:
Thanks, as always, for being here!
