I am so new to this whole stitching world. A few of the ladies from the stitching guild I joined have said to me "So you only do cross stitch?!?", and I have to say yes because that is all I knew up until a short while ago. Don't get me wrong, they don't say it in a mean way, more of a "I can't believe you haven't been sucked into this wide universe of hardanger, canvas work, blackwork and all the other varieties (see I don't even know what they are all called!), with no way back but to stitch your way out. But the guild, blogs and youtubers are enabling me.
I only discovered needlework shops about a year and a half ago. Before that all I knew was Micheals and Walmart for stitching supplies. If they didn't carry it, I didn't know it existed.
But upon finding Stitcherista I was introduced to Lizzie*Kate and I had to have those Lizzie*Kate patterns. The first one I bought was At Our House and I was a goner.
So perhaps there are more people like me who are just discovering this wide stitching world and maybe could benefit from this tutorial.
