Cross stitching probably reminds one school times (at least I was taught this at school), maybe even grandmother’s, however, it is indeed a very nice way to spend leisure time and it is also useful because it is possible to make very interesting things which can be applied in the interior. Of course, a lot of time and patience is needed for that, however, for those who want an original interior detail or for those who wish a hand-made creation cross stitching can be a very good way out.
When men are working ‘black’ work which leads to a wonderful result (probably and the prices are wonderful).
It can be a summer work – a rather original chair.
You can embroider anything that you want above a working table. Of course, threads are already thicker here and scale is completely different but a principle is the same.
Cross stitching can be seen and on a carpet.
A lovely DIY work – an embroidered letter which you can frame.
It is also possible to cheat – to paint stitches :)
I recommend watching a video below this photo. Special ‘walls’ were made for a restaurant – various ornaments embroidered on metal net. I am charmed how much work and effort is put into this but the result is really astonishing.
