I am a stitcher. And I prepare hand-made gifts for my friends every year. Yes, it usually takes a lot of time. I must stitch and finish my work. And I've decided to make my own quick and easy primitive cross-stitch patterns specially for Christmas and New Year gifts. In this post I'll show you 10 ways of finishing your cross-stitch pieces. Enjoy!
