One Done

Way back in February I wrote this post about all the unfinished projects I discovered packed away in boxes. I have been diligently working on the first one and finished it the other night. All that remains is to get a frame for it.

I won't bore you with all the frustrating mistakes I made on this first ever cross stitch project (I mean, really, who manages to get indelible ORANGE marker on their fabric?). Suffice it to say, it is not perfect. But I am happy with it, and enjoyed it enough to begin another one.

I find I have to sneak a little knitting in here and there. It just calls to me sometimes.

So without further ado - project number one:

Linda, I think that is an absolutely
darling piece. I really love it. I
have been cross stitching for over
twenty-five years and still love it
as much today as I did the first time
I stitched.

It is beautiful, Linda! I remember that post about all of those projects. This encourages me. So, it's not too late? :)

Thank you, dear friend, for your sweet words after my difficult day. It means so much.

luv you!

There's something peaceful about cross stitch. This is a precious scene, love the colours.

way to go on getting a project almost completed.
