Yup, that is cross-stitch. I haven’t done it since Girl Scouts, but it is sort of like riding a bike. I can’t show you the whole thing yet because it is a gift, but it is turning out pretty well and I hope the recipients will like it.
I promise it isn’t as trite as it may appear from the picture. I better get it finished, though before the technology it obsolete (vague enough?).
BTW, I have stabbed myself with the needle no fewer than a dozen times – I totally need a thimble!
