When I was younger my mom did a lot of cross stitching, so it holds a very dear place in my heart. When I found out about Sarah Bonk Stitches I had to have my own home state stitch to display in my room. It’s a welcome addition to other stitchings from my childhood. Psssst – stay tuned to win one for yourself!
