Cross-stitch is a form of swing. The stitcher counts the threads on a piece of even weave fabric (such as linen)

in each direction so that the stitches are of uniform size and appearance.


Cross-stitch is also executed on

easily countable fabric called aida cloth but the threads are not actually counted. Cross-stitch is the oldest form

of embroidery and can be found all over the world. Many folk museums show examples of clothing decorated with

cross-stitch, especially from continental Europe, Asia, and Eastern and Central Europe. Traditionally, cross-stitch

was used to embellish items like household linens, tablecloths, dishcloths, and doilies.


Although there are many cross-stitchers who still employ it in this fashion,

it is now increasingly popular to work the pattern on pieces of fabric and hang them on

the wall for decoration. Cross stitch is also often used to make greeting cards, pillowtops,

or as inserts for box tops, coasters and trivets.

Sand art

I think that each of us was building castles on the sand. But, did you know that lots of people in the world love doing some beautiful things from sand even though they are not children. They are doing sand art.


This is a type of art made in Sand, for ex ample: sand brushing, sand sculpture, sand painting, or sand bottlers. It’s amazing. There are also some festivals and competitions of sand art. From 1989 until 2009,

a World Championship in Sand Sculpture was held in Harrison Hot Springs in Harrison, British Columbia, Canada, also known as "Harrisand". The competition had solo, double and team categories.

The "World championship was held in ft Myers, Florida and other venues for a limited time. Other countries hold their own versions of the world championships as it is not possible to get all the people

who may qualify in the same place at the same time due to the expense and logistics.

The world's tallest sand castle was built on Myrtle Beach in South Carolina by Team Sandtastic as part of the 2007 Sun Fun Festival. The structure was 49.55 feet (15.1 m) high.

It took 10 days to construct and used 300 truckloads of sand.

What about you? Do you enjoy sandpainting or another hobby with sand? Do you want to go on a Sand festival?
