Many days I plan to spend two hours doing chores, then cross stitch the rest of the day but that never seems to happen. Yesterday, for the most part, it happened. I ended up roasting a chicken and cooking green beans for lunch. I had taken out some chicken breasts with bone and skin to boil to make chicken soup so I got that done and other than walking Rita a few times, I sat with Boots and stitched most all day, then brought it upstairs and continued to stitch til bedtime.
I feel like I got a huge amount done but according to the stitching program, I made 453 stitches yesterday and am now 23.65% done. That surprises me because the house and grass are a lot of stitches. Letters and flowers in the border aren’t so much stitches but there are still flowers and more of the tree, a couple of birds . . it’s just hard to believe there’s still more than 75% left to be done but who am I to argue with the computer? 🙂
