The Story behind Simply Cross Stitch
2020 - we have all experienced dramatic changes in our lives.
Looking back although it didn’t feel like it at the time, I was lucky to go into lock down with my youngest son, in a rental home away from the rest of the family so that we could shield together away from coronavirus.
Knowing that I might get bored by watching TV and endless other types of screen activity, before I left I found a cross stitch kit that had been gathering dust in the back of a cupboard waiting for a day when I had enough time and motivation to do it.
During the lockdown I did eventually start it - and what a fantastic revelation it was! On and off I have tried to get into mindfulness but have found it quite difficult to free my mind to be just in the moment: it just didn’t feel like it was being very productive… But with this cross stitch project - I was concentrating on counting stitches and my mind just couldn't cope with thinking about anything else. It was a truly relaxing experience.
So I'd like to share with you the chance to be liberated from the hustle and bustle of a stressful life by doing your own cross stitch projects.
Everything is included in the kit so there is no need to do any preparation work that can put you off from diving in to do something new!
I hope you will find that you enjoy cross stitch as much as I do.
