The new issue of Martha Stewart Living arrived in my mailbox yesterday and I instantly fell in love with the No-Stitch Cross-Stitch candleholder project. Sampler-style cross-stitching is created using a paint pen and Martha’s templates (which you can download from her site). It would be fun to try this with glass etching cream as well, on a set of drinking glasses–what a perfect housewarming gift. Link.
