Hand made cross stitched art is unique and affordable wall art.
For a long time people were embellishing their clothes and household items with hand embroideries.
This traditional cross stitch design was cross stitched about 10 years ago.
Another sample of my work is about 11 years old and pattern was found in special edition magazine by "Burda"

I agree, that cross stitching is time consuming craft, but it give you a surcease in your everyday crazy life.
I found this free and fun cross stitch text generator at Magic Robot Cross Stitch website.
So sit, stitch and enjoy!
