Falling in love with cross-stitch

Hello Lovelies!

Now I don't know about you, but when I hear the word cross-stitch the first thing that pops to mind is grandmas and old fashioned patterns. It's not really something I could picture myself doing any time soon at all. But after seeing @jasxcharlotte doing all sorts of beautiful embroidery on her Instagram, I knew I wanted to try it too. Originally I bought a very beautiful embroidery kit from ohsewbootiful but this was way too complicated for a beginner like me, especially one who has never been particularly good at practical tasks.
