I made this for my cousin-in-law to put a picture of her young son a few years ago. It's a plastic magnet frame. This was an interesting project because instead of aida cloth this was stitched on plastic. I think this took me about a couple of weeks to a month. And then at the end to assemble the frame I had to cut out the center where the picture is to be inserted and glue the magnets to the back. Cutting out the center was kind of difficult since it was plastic and there were some small corners around Taz. I also bought a similar Winnie the Pooh magnet frame for someone else, but I haven't worked on it as yet.

I made this one for one of my best friends for her birthday in 2008. I chose it because her favorite color is blue and she loves butterflies. I also chose it because it came with it's own frame. It was a relatively easy project, took me less than a week to complete. Only the butterfly was cross-stitched.

Cross-stitching has been a hobby of mine for about 6 years and I felt it would make an interesting blog topic. For those who don't know, cross-stitching is a form of embroidery that uses X-shaped stitches. I find it to be a fun, relaxing and creative way to spend time. I mainly do projects as gifts for friends and family. Most projects take anywhere from a week or two to several months.
