Reena’s Exploration Challenge #92 –Crossover

on

For crossover, there are only a couple of things I can think of (aside from the concept of crossing over from life to death.) One is a crossover brassier, where the fabric crosses over and serves to lift and separate to give support. Image result for benefits of crossover bra

The other is when tying boats up to a dock there is a crossover knotting that holds the boat secure but is easily undone.

Oh wait, I just thought of one other thing with the crossover, and that is with counted cross stitch. When the “x” is made, to give the best effect you always cross them in the same order. When I do my cross-stitch, I always start in the bottom left corner and go to the upper right corner for as many stiches in that row, then return with the bottom right corner to the upper left corner.

    Wow! I’m learning many applications of the word. Susi Bocks mentioned a pie, and you have brought in more variety including embroidery 🙂 Thanks a lot!

    I remember when I used to do cross stitch. It was one of the few types of embroidery I can do.

      I like it because all you have to do is count, which keeps your mind clear of other clutter.

        And I gave up because counting them was straining my eyes

          I finished a piece I started 25 years ago last year and discovered my eyes aren’t what they used to be also 😦

            Yup, it happens with age. Same here.

    “a crossover brassier, where the fabric crosses over and serves to lift and separate to give support.” I’m waiting for someone to invent the ball bra, where the idea is to lift and separate. As we men age, we can use some lift and separation down there! 😱

    Nice post. Cross stitch was the first thing I was taught in craft class. Now eyes don’t allow to do that. Thanks for reminding. Liked this post. 🙂
