Paint n' Stitch

 All my life, my mother has cross-stitched.  That's the tiny millions of X's that make up a whole piece of work.  She's done dragon flies, a hurricane map, bass fish, you name it.  So at a young age, I also wanted to try and learn.  She bought me the tiny ones at first to learn and eventually I've done my own big pieces.  All of which I still have today, and cherish, because they take A LOT of time.

The other day I was thinking how I hadn't cross-stitched in a while.  I just starting thinking, why not mix paint and my knowledge of sewing.  Below is my first attempt at mixing painting and hand sewing. Enjoy!
