Cross Stitching: My Unraveling Addiction (In a Good Way!)

Cross Stitching: My Unraveling Addiction (In a Good Way!)

Posted by Pinoy Stitch on Jun 3rd 2023

I've reached the point where I see cross stitch patterns everywhere. I catch myself analyzing tiled floors, pixelated video game characters, and even my grandma's floral couch, all with the thought of, "How could I cross stitch that?" It's like my brain has been permanently rewired to see the world in tiny, colorful squares. 

And let's not forget about the stash—the ever-growing collection of threads, fabrics, and patterns that has taken over my living space. Forget about finding matching socks; just try finding the remote control in a sea of embroidery floss. Every time I visit the craft store, I convince myself that I absolutely need another shade of purple or another pattern for a project I may or may not start anytime soon. It's a never-ending cycle of "Just one more thing!" 

But you know what? I wouldn't change a thing. Cross stitching has become my creative outlet, my stress reliever, and my source of endless entertainment. Sure, my friends might think I'm a little "loose in the stitches," but I've embraced my addiction with pride. Who needs a social life when you can spend your evenings surrounded by colorful threads and endless possibilities? 

So, here's to all my fellow cross stitching addicts out there. Embrace your obsession, wear your needlework proudly, and don't let anyone tell you it's "just a hobby." We're the masters of the needle, the lords and ladies of the cross stitch kingdom. And together, we'll stitch our way to infinite happiness, one tiny square at a time! 

Until next time, may your floss be untangled and your needles be sharp. Happy stitching, my friends!
