Yes! It seems amazing to me, but I pulled out my cross-stitch bag today and actually CROSS-STITCHED. 50-80 stitches, I’m guessing. Oh, it felt so good!
Since mentioning the “Rejoice” Angel pattern I came across yesterday, I realized I had an unfinished project that needed my attention first. Raphael’s Angels by Leisure Arts – lovely. I honestly cannot remember how long I’ve been working on this project. But I was quite surprised when I took it out today how little I had left to do! Probably another 500 1/2 stitches in the clouds, then those nasty 1/4 stitches for their eyes, then a little backstitching and I’ll have completed a project! SO, I’m considering setting up a separate blog for my “Chronicles of Cross-stitching” to chart my progress and share my enjoyment of this craft.
And yes, it was relaxing. And yes, I find it a very leisurely thing to do with my time! Yea for me for stopping to do this marvelous craft!
