About Me

Hi Everyone and Welcome!

My name is Kristen Gawronski (aka the XStitching Runner) and I’m from Canberra, Australia. I’m in my mid 30’s and I’ve been cross-stitching seriously for over 10 years. I’m drawn to cross-stitch patterns involving Australiana, horses, cats, dogs and colourful patterns that look like they would be fun to stitch.

When I’m not stitching (and driving my boyfriend batty by leaving my threads and works-in-progress around the house), I’m trying to remain fit by running when I can and attending group training sessions with an awesome group of people. The trainers are pretty awesome too! To help keep me motivated with running, I participate in 5km and 10km fun runs in Canberra and the surrounds.
