Hi Everyone !
Despite having about 15 cross stitch projects on the go , I found myself bored with ALL of them yesterday . . ! It would be simply impossible for me to stick to a rotation , or to stick to just one project at a time since I get bored so easily . . ! And the last thing I want is to be bored by my cross stitching , so then , of course , I HAVE to find yet another project that inspires me . . ! Sometimes - or quite often actually! - it feels as if I only START new projects , and never FINISH any! Then it is high time to have a look at my list of recent finishes just to remind myself that I AM capable of finishing things . . . sometimes : ) )
So , what did I decide to stitch on yesterday then, in the end ? ?
Well , I had been thinking of the gift tags stitched with white thread on red aida so I got some red aida and stitched some small white motifs . . . : )
It felt really rewarding to stitch something and to finish so quickly - maybe that's why I got bored with all my other projects . . ?
Then I decided to pick up an Christmas UFO that I started over ten years ago , when I still lived in England ! It is from a Swedish women's magazine , and a project I got bored with back in the day when I faced ALL the evening sky stitched in blue . . ! However , everything with a Xmas theme inspires me at the moment so I thought, why not ? ? So this is what it looked like when I started yesterday evening . . .
... and this is how it looked when I stopped stitching a couple of hours later:
It is stitched on 11-count aida , so it stitches up quite quickly : ) However , some of the chart is difficult to read and there are some faults so I am going to have to wing it a bit before it is finished .
However , I enjoyed stitching it and I will put in some more hours on it tonight : )
What I will feel like stitching tomorrow , however , is anyone's guess . . . ha ha !
Happy Stitching !
