Cross Stitching... Again

20 years ago you probably wouldn't have seen me without a cross stitch project close by. I LOVED stitching... and stitched every where... while watching TV, on family road trips, during my (blow-off) Yearbook class in high school...

Over time other things started taking priority in my free time (SEWING!! QUILTING!!) and cross stitch projects got stashed in a box in the closet. But over the last year I've been lovin' the pictures of Amanda's cross stitch projects, and thinking about picking up a project.

And what better project than The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's Dessert of the Month sampler?!?

I'm not 100% sure about my fabric choice (slim pickins at Hobby Lobby today)... I might give JoAnns and/or Michaels a try tomorrow... but I'm excited to get started.

While searching through my craft supplies this week I found a few old projects. I'm a little sad that I can't find the full chart for the bunnies (missing the color chart) or any part of the underwater chart... I would love to finish them up.

Love the map.
I have some linen from when I was doing x-stitch -- I'll bring it to the meeting if you like. I don't think my old eyes aren't really up to it any more.

The map and underwater pieces are my favs. I too have some old unfinished cross-stitch works. I just bought some new charts. I am a glutton for punishment. Good luck in finding the charts.
