I know… me?? A Tiny needle Tuesday post???
But I think I’ve mentioned before, that cross stitching was actually my first craft. I set it aside in my teens, but watching so many of you make tiny little Xs has had me itching to get get stitching!
Not long after we bought the house, Dee sent me a pattern for a little house sampler, and I’ve been dying to get started on it. But since it’s been so long, I figured I should probably start a little smaller. So I dug out a project that’s been around for far too long.
Back in the early 2000s, Mom bought a couple Debbie Mumm kits to make and hang in her bathroom.
She made the butterfly one, but lost interest. A couple years later, she asked if I wanted the dragonfly. I said I would take it and make it for her. And then I put it on my shelf, and there it sat forever and ever.
Until the other day that is. I pulled it out, ready to get started…
It was already started!! But here’s the kicker… neither of us remembers doing it. I’m pretty sure if I’d started it, I’d remember. But it’s not the first time I’d be wrong about remembering something. And at the end of the day.. it doesn’t really matter. It just meant the project would be even easier.
By the end of the evening, I had all the crosses done! Up next is the outlining. I used to dread the outlining, so it will be interesting to see how it goes. Stay tuned!
