This isn’t stressful for me because I love planning and playing with fabric and floss but I cannot decide what to do for June Cross Stitch Camp.
Should I do something very simple that I’m almost certain I’ll get finished? Certain should not be a word in my vocabulary because no matter how sure I am that I will get something done, I often don’t. Yesterday, we didn’t plan on leaving the house and thought I would cross stitch all day. We didn’t leave the house except for running to Atwoods to get a funnel but I never took a single stitch. I had a grocery order delivered and put all that away. I made yogurt, I got those strawberries. We hooked up the freeze dryer. Got the strawberries slice and in the freeze dryer. Stirred up sourdough English muffins to make tomorrow. But, never touched the cross stitching.
Should I do something a bit more challenging and force myself to sit and stitch a lot more than I’ve been doing?
But, I do have a few days before June 1 so I need to settle on a project. If I want to go simple, I could do Glory:
Or, I could do the Prim Alphabet Sampler I showed earlier. I would probably frame it because I have a great place to hang this.
If I want to do a project that’s just a bit more challenging, I could do Sarah Platt 1811. I love those colors.
Even a bit more challenging would be Little Deeds. I have wanted to make this one since I saw it.
I’m thinking June is probably the month I’ll have the most time to get things done. Addie has her little enrichment type summer school during the month of June so I probably won’t see much of her during June. We have a trip planned for July so there will be at least a week of no cross stitching. I’ll take knitting because of needing magnifying lamp/glasses to stitch. August . . seems like so far away but I know it isn’t.
