Cross-Stitch



I started doing cross-stitch about 5 years ago when I broke my femur and was stuck on the couch with a cast covering my whole leg for 6-8 weeks. I only do counted cross-stitch and I prefer to use the kits. Last month I finished a small cross-stitch of seashells. We got it framed and after much debate, decided it looked best in the upstairs bathroom - the walls are painted a much darker shade than the rest of the upstairs. The frame of the seashells was too light/blended in against the other walls. When we moved in, we painted every room except the bathrooms and the guest room downstairs. I chose a color called 'seaside sand.' It's a very, very light sand color with just enough of a tint to contrast against the white crown moulding we have in every room. I like neutral colors because then you can have any kind of decor and if you need new furniture or a new bedspread, you don't have to worry about matching the walls/carpet.
