I started doing counted cross stitch when I was in high school. I belonged to the embroidery guild for a while and learned about LOTS of forms of embroidery I didn't know exsisted. I LOVE hardanger, but haven't done any quite some time. I found a few UFO's when I was rearranging my sewing room recently.
