Southern Cross

I used to do cross-stitching a long time ago. In fact, I still have several projects going.

Projects that have been years in the making.

As much as I like doing scrapbooking and altered art, I think it’s time I got back into cross-stitching. It’s something I can do while sitting with the kids, and let’s face it: the mess is minimal. Besides, Hubby bought me a ton of embroidery floss and it’s a shame to see it sitting at the bottom of the closet, a riot of color peeking up accusingly at me every time I go in to get paper or glue.

That is the alphabet, designed from a sketch Hubby made waaaaay back in 1988, while in college. You will notice the date I finished it. I’m a bit slow, but hopefully I will get the rest of the projects done this year.

I just need to not start any new ones πŸ˜‰

    You and Cruel Wife are damn near twins physically and interest-wise. It is spooky.

    My wife also does cross stitch. Is this a conspiracy?

    Everyone loves whatever she makes. They should, for as long as they take!

    I’ve heard that cross stitch is a gateway for knitting. Watch out! πŸ˜€

    What the heck, start all you want. I like to think of ‘unfinished projects’ as just step stones to the future. Yeah…that’s it.

    Aggie, what has happened to H&B ? i have not been able to get it to come up for several days now.

    I finally took all my projects that I had started years ago and got rid of most of them. I want to get back into knitting though, something I can do that will get me away from the computer πŸ™‚

    My last project was about 8 years ago, possibly more. An angel with beading done on very small squares made for my aunt. Prior to that, I did a lot of cross stitch. I still have tons of pattern magazines and floss.

    My mom has a tablecloth she has been embroidering for my aunt since she was in college. My aunt has something she has been stitching for mom since about the same time. Every so often they visit their unfinished gifts. πŸ™‚

    That’s way too very cool. I should post a picture of the alphabet one the Juju Woman did. It’s not cooler, it’s just different.
