Happy New Year, officially. We have had a rough start to 2013, but we are plugging along anyway.
One of my projects this year is to finish 3 different embroidery/cross-stitch/needlework projects. This is the wonderfully beautiful Winterwoods ABC Sampler by Posie Gets Cozy. I ordered it when it came out in March last year (!) and it sat on my to-do pile for that long. I think I was mentally intimidated by the project because I have not really tackled a counted cross-stitch project in years and years.
It took me a couple of starts and stops (and thank goodness for the extra floss she provided), but I have finally settled into a rhythm. I am so charmed by each little stitch.
This has been really nice because while Brian plays his video game on the Playstation 3, I can stitch along on the couch nearby.
I have a grand vision of putting all my stitched works on the wall in the playroom. Right now only one piece is framed. I might just buy the frames and hang it up so that it will inspire me to finish up the projects!
