And how quickly!
A friend came to visit me once.
a good friend.
She stayed for a week.
Every night when we were having coffee,
I would see her take out this little piece of material,
and bit by bit I saw a beautiful picture emerge.
Of a beautiful blue windmill in Amsterdam.
* Sheila, what are you doing?*
I asked one night.
She told me it was a hobby called * Cross Stitch.*
That was over thirty years ago,
and that night, she showed me what to do.
I was hooked, literally,
Over these years I've had times
( sometimes tough ) when I just didn't feel like
sewing at all.
Recently, I've just discovered the love of it again.
What has amazed me is the AMOUNT of
blogs there are out there about cross stitching.
I could happily spend all night surfing the net,
looking at the beautiful things people create.
When I got in from work tonight, this had arrived in the post.
Don't you just love the little mama bird protecting her eggs?
Zaza thank you :)
How pretty this pattern
I love the reds of Christmas
Now the only dilemma is do I start it or work on on my chickens?
Maybe I should start another poll....
Thanks Isabelle, for another wonderful project :)
Stitches and kisses to you all,
