Modern Cross-Stitch

The art of cross-stitch is seen as a dying craft, it is seen as a more traditional craft being practised by the WI and sold at church sales. I remember my Mum first teaching me to cross-stitch when I was 7 or 8 years old. It was mainly small floral images and symmetrical patterns. However, Beki from RatherUnseamly is challenging this misconception. She is bring cross-stitch to the modern world!

And here's something a little more seasonal from her shop! It's a pattern, so you can have a go at cross-stitch yourself!
