When packing for my recent trip to the coast, I decided to take along my current cross stitch project. I hadn't worked on it in some time--at least a year, probably more. I had put it in the closet when we moved to this house a little over a year ago and hadn't pulled it out since.
I have made 9 of these stockings now and honestly it is getting a little boring. Especially the ones like the current one that have a large section of "wallpaper". There is so much repetition it is mind numbing. So I didn't really want to take it, and didn't really intend on working on it when I was there.
But my sister wanted to see it. "It looks the same as it did the last time you saw it," I said. She wanted to see it anyway. I think it was a plot, because as soon as I pulled it out, I had to start working on it. "You're almost done!" she said. Okay, okay, I'll work on the stupid thing.
I almost finished the stocking in those 3 days we were visiting my mom, and last night I did the last few lines of pink. Now I have until Christmas to turn it into a stocking like all the rest.
Nine down, ONE to go!
I am now dreaming of what I will do when I am done with the last stocking. I haven't even started it yet, and I can't wait to be done. What should I do? Another cross stitch project? I already make quilts but that isn't really a sit down on the couch and watch tv type of craft. Maybe I will take up knitting....Nah.
