Natasha’s Favorite Thing

“A favorite thing of mine has been cross stitching! It allows me to be a bit creative by choosing fun patterns without having to think too much since there is a pattern I can follow. At the end of a long day when I just need a bit of time to destress, cross-stitching is a great outlet for me.” – Natasha Thurmon
