I think one of the things that keeps me from getting much cross-stitch done is the fact that I have to constantly set it up and put it away when done. Can't have little needles and threads laying around with a dog and cat that spend much of their days alone in my shoebox of an apartment, so I do have to make sure that everything is cleared away when I am done.
That being said, last night I watched a movie and made some progress:
All the lettering is done, aside for the "O" in the "Over." Now I have to stitch in the stream with the fishes. This while project is going to take way longer than I thought (this is only one panel of 12. Yikes.)
About a week ago we had a rare moment here in Texas. We had a snow day.
As you can see, it was very little snow. Miniscule really-- but it had remained below freezing for about 3 days before this, and about 1/4 inch of freezing rain fell before the snow, meaning that the roads totally iced over. As in skating rink. I woke up that morning and all the highways in the county had been shut down, school was canceled, and the roads were impossible. (There are no salters or plows down here-- so while you may laugh about everything shutting down with so little ice/snow, remember that it snows here, oh once every few decades.) So we waited, basically, until the ice melted.
Anyway, life remains quiet. I have seed-started some seeds for tomato plants- I am doing these for myself and some friends who want plants but don't want the hassel of seed-starting (not like its hard but they seem freaked out about it)
I love watching seedlings grow! In about 10 days I hope to have a few little guys poking out.
Anyway, I have picked upa few small kintting UFOs that I wish to finish. Too small for any meaningful pictures, but I will share them soon!
