So close but not finished as of 10 p.m. I will probably have it finished before I go to bed though . . maybe.
Here’s my list from last night:
JUNE 15, 2021 (EDIT)
Why can’t I stay on track? Never have … probably never will.
Yesterday I had such big plans of cross stitching all day and I didn’t get started til almost 8 p.m. What did I do? Good question!
Vince got home and needed my help for a bit outside.
Then it was time for dinner, which was just leftovers.
The biggest time killer was that a friend is going to stitch the same chart I want to stitch and we spent hours chatting about what floss we’re going to use. Neither of us will probably use what we decided we’d use so . . total waste of time but fun.
In yesterday’s post, here’s what I said I had to get done:
Finish the trunk of the tree (near the bottom). Done! Finish the letters at the bottom “e a friend to all”. Done!
- Stitch four leaves. (But there are really five leaves! I’ve done one side of each leaf so the second side will be easy.)
- Stitch four small “decorations” in the words.
Stitch the bottom border (which is just straight stitching). Done!
- Stitch the right side border. Started! (Done!)
- Finish the bird.
What wasn’t on the list was the dormers, windows and door. I’ve stitched the door, the dormers and four of the nine windows.
The next time you see this . . it will be finished! Promise!!
I won’t show a picture til probably tomorrow evening because I need to get a line stitched, get the piece trimmed and get it pressed.
