You should, it is amazingly good for you, body and soul. Start out small and work your way up It's a fantastic way to diet as you can't snack when you're stitching in case the food spoils the fabric. It worked for me <3
I wouldn't really care about other people's opion on me stitching xD
But I want do learn so many things xD Like making drawings in photoshop, 3D-modelling, getting better at pixelart, stitching, learning C++ and stuff, and a lot more xD And I can't seem to focus on one thing, plus I have school, and some games I just HAVE to play.
It's all so awesome, and it's a great way to express yourself :3
