Setting down the hook ...
In the meantime, my time out was because I was so excited to see my cross stitch ... Winter Sampler ... which arrived yesterday afternoon. But I have to admit, initially I was a bit overwhelmed. I had wanted a piece to work on in cross stitch "over time" that was larger and more intricate. Talk about asking and receiving!
I have always admired the work of stitchers, but I certainly have a greater respect for the time and effort they put into their master pieces after seeing this and this is not one of the big ones. I was reading a blog recently where a project being worked on had 12 charts to it. Can you image?
This piece still does talk to me though, I can picture a chilly winter's eve covered in my toasty afghan adding stitches to this treasure. That's part of the beauty too ... no time limit, just enjoyment, stitch by stitch.
