February is National Embroidery Month in the USA. Apparently this came about from the editor of Stitches Magazine in the 1990s thinking about made up "marketing holidays" such as National Hot Dog Day, with her team who decided they needed a day like that for embroidery. They wrote to the publisher of a book of marketing holidays which was primarily sold to public relations firms and advertising agencies. They announced that Stitches Magazine was sponsoring National Embroidery Month and started promoting it.
This is my take on a cross stitch project as I don't have any actual stitching work, I used black, red and silver markers to make up a pattern (I used to do a lot of cross stitch work and found a template I could use).
