I bought several kits, Thomas Kinkade Embellished kits, but I'm afraid to start one. Where do you begin, and how long should you leave the strands of thread on the back?

I have been cross stitching for many years and have way too many books,patterns and supplies. My closet that i share with my finacee is mostly mine. It's filled with sewing, cross stitch and crocheting supplies.

I also love to cross stitch but have gotten away from it for awhile. Time to pick up my needle and get back into it. Some of my favorite designs are from Sam Hawkins, Donna Kooler, . I prefer the small designs, kitchen sayings, fridge magnets etc. over the larger designs. I dont want to spend months stitching something out. I also like making xmas ornaments in cross stitch. Every year i add to my collection. Also like most of you have my share of books, patterns, leaflets. Im happy to be in this new group and glad to meet people who share my passion.

I have been cross-stitching since I was a child. My mom taught me how so that I would have something to do while I was home from school in the summer. I'm presently working on a kit by Janlynn of an Old World Map. I'm close to finishing, but it's taken me several months because it's so large. It's an addictive hobby!

Just a quick hello. I just joined sew-whats-new and just started cross-stitching again (and embroidery). It's great to have little projects to sit while watching tv. I like to sew, too. I have alot of projects on the back burner. I'm working on a simple "autumn" cross-stitch to hang in the kitchen. I'm just about done.
