I’d rather stay home and cross stitch too!

Us stitchers would often rather stay home, right? Although some cross stitch projects are perfect to take outdoors with you, the best place to stitch is at home surrounded by our creature comforts. It’s okay, you’re with the right people to admit your deepest and darkest desires. A mug of steaming tea or coffee, a soothing playlist on in the background and the rain tapping against your windows. It sounds absolutely perfect to me! That’s why I had a good giggle whilst designing this pattern because I really would Rather stay home and stitch!

But can I really stay home and cross stitch?

Not everyone is going to agree with our love for stitching. Or for staying home. And that’s completely okay! They really don’t need to. They just need to know that that’s what makes you happiest. But the stitching life is not always easy. Sometimes family and friends will call you boring. Or make fun of you granny hobby. Well, the jokes on them because staying home and enjoying a nice evening with a cup of tea and a cross stitch project does absolute wonders for your mental health! So let the haters hate and put on your noise cancelling headphones, because I hereby give you permission to just stay home and cross stitch!
