Falling for cross-stitch


Today's post on Design Sponge about this super cool Helvetica cross-stitch kit got me buzzing about cross-stitch and embroidery - which for some reason is such a cool weather activity for me. Curling up under a blanket on the couch with a soothing hand embroidery project is certainly more appealing when it's 65 degrees outside instead of 110 degrees.

It also reminded me of a great book we carry called Rainbow of Stitches. I can't tell you how many times I've used the various embroidery and cross-stitch motifs in this book for handmade gifts. Plus, it includes plenty of tips and techniques to get you started with embroidery and cross-stitch if you've never tried it before (it's much easier than you think).
