May 6 CrossStitch Update
I have no After of Tresures because I was so disappointed in my lack of time spent on it - it was no change.
So I wondered, what is up with that - why was it so difficult for me to stitch this past week, on a chart I LOVE - its a black and white, I have the perfect place for it, it is a Mermaid...... So what was my problem. Simple it is the 25 ct fabric. I am sure of it - I can't see it and I have to use a magnifer and I have not found a comfortable way to stitch on it. What to do???? Well - it will work out I know, because I really love it too much to leave it UNFINISHED. So I am on the search for a much better magnifier thing. And I may just go to the eye drs and see if she can hook me up with better glasses, well just needlework glasses.... or something.
In the meantime, after reading other blogs, I have started missing my NON HAED design wips. So I am going to change some things up. Not sure just how - but I am going to start working on more variety of projects. I know if I keep the beads out - which I hate, and the fractional stitches - which I hate I think I will be just fine. I do not mind the back stitching. And for the designs I really love with beads, half the time you can leave the beads out and they look just fine to me. And seriously, aren't I the one that matters here.
Mowed the lawn today - it was like a jungle out there... but glad that is over.
Love Sunday nights. Remind me of being a kid and family times, but now I am not watching Disney, or Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom - but I am watching a Fairy Tale.... Once Upon a Time. So addicted that show, must be because after Mermaids, I think I love witches most.
