Only a few more days till my husband comes home, and I find myself keeping busy to make the time pass more quickly.
Today I felt the need to put in some old Stargate dvd's, park on the couch, and hand-stitch.
This is my first time doing cross-stitch...pretty much ever. I mean I had one or two attempts when I was 9 years old or so, but I was too impatient for anything that wasn't quick. Cross-stitch is not quick. At. All.
Working on such tiny stitches with nothing but a printout of some pixelated images was definitely not as relaxing as, say, a nice back-stitch or some hand quilting. But I find cross stitch lends itself particularly well to this kind of image, and the end result is very satisfying.
I can't say yet what this is for, but I can already say that I won't be keeping it. Which is a little sad for me, but I'll get over it. Most of what I make I give away anyway.
