I miss my stitch group in Hokkaido, but I am happy to have a new one here. The first project I planned was a cross stitch book mark, stitched on prefinished Ribband. They each charted their own design on graph paper and chose their own colors of DMC cotton floss.
After about two hours, we had sweets and green tea.
We will meet again in a couple of weeks. I am very happy to have new friends to stitch with!
