I love cross stitching. But I’m exceptionally fussy. I almost exclusively stitch Mill Hill kits. They are stylish and interesting– not the 1980’s block lettering samplers that make me shudder!
I’ve found it very difficult to find the time to cross stitch items for myself. Every time I go shopping, I always find myself picking up designs that I want to make and give to people I love.  My goal, this year, was to stitch at least two wall hangings for decorating our house. 
I started stitching this one with every intention to keep it for us. The color palette fit the colors I am hoping to use in our first apartment. I love the message and the beading accents. It took me about half a year to finish because halfway through finishing it up, I undertook my massive Christmas ornament project. (Did you miss it? Check all of the ornaments I cross stitched here.) 
This year, Maryland became a marriage equality state, so two of my friends were able to marry. The fight between opponents and proponents of marriage equality is contentious all over our country, so when I thought of a gift for them, I knew I wanted to give them this cross stitch wishing them peace.

Even though it’s in their house… I’m still going to count it towards #52 in my 100 in 365. All’s fair in love and cross stitch, right?
