Yay for writing! And your cross stitch project looks pretty. When you do that, would you say that you push the needle through with the pad of your thumb, or do you think it would be feasible to hold the needle between thumb and forefinger? I've been wanting to take on a sewing project, but I lost half my right thumb in an industrial accident, and I'm not sure about handling a needle yet.

A little late, but the other good thing about cross stitch is that the fabric comes pre-hole'd. So unless you're stitching really small (where the floss takes up more of the hole space so the last stitch is harder), you don't need too much pressure to make each stitch. If you want to try, maybe pick up a kit with 6 or 8-count Aida cloth (numbers = squares per inch, bigger number means smaller grid), since kits will usually include everything you need except scissors and maybe a hoop.

Best wishes with the cross stitch. I am sort of in the process of attempting it myself, and hahahaha nope it is not for me.
