I started Miss Mitchell's First Grade Christmas pageant yesterday on some ivory aida I had in stash. I liked working on it so much that I worked on it all day long. I figure if I can get a kid done a stitching session, this will go quickly. The backstitch is not easy, though, and there is a lot of it. I'm really excited about this chart. I know I keep saying it, but this is probably the one I wanted to start the most out of everything, and now I've done it! Woo hoo!
Today starts "Sugar Plum Fairy by CCN. I've already decided this will be finished into a cube, which I'll put under the cross stitch tree next year, along with some other Christmas finishes, so that they'll look like Christmas gifts. I think it will be a cute way to display them, and, if I set my mind to it, it's not that hard to finish. I already have the fabric for finishing this one.
Well, have to go. I will try to get on tomorrow to post. I have the day off, but I'm not sure. I plan to be busy--I'll be at the laundry mat, washing comforters, and then going to try to get most of the Christmas decorations taken down and put away--not looking forward to that. I did finish taking the cross stitch tree down last night. It was much easier to pull apart than to put together. I appreciate that. Maybe they realize no one wants to fool around, putting the decorations away. Meari had asked for photos of my model horses, so I will try to post some snaps of those before I put them away, as well.
Otherwise, have a great Thursday!
