On to the subject of cross stitching. I told my husband a few days ago that I actually finished more cross stitch pieces when I only worked on one at a time. In my early years of cross stitching, I actually worked on one from start to finish before I started another. When I started stitching more than one, I finished less. Kind of frustrating.
I have a several Christmas pieces (well, really more than several) that I sometimes forget about and don't work on during the year. Fall rolls around and I remember that I should have been working on this one or that one. Such is the case with the Hinzeit Crystal Reindeer. If I only do one reindeer a year, we're looking at four years to go and then add a year for Rudolph and a year for the sleigh. Get the picture? I have made the decision to work on these little guys as much as possible and maybe get them finished by Christmas 2016. Below is a picture of my current progress. Forgive the wrinkles! No need to iron it and wrinkle it as soon as I pick it up again. I usually work in hand and keep the left end rolled while I'm working.
Wish me luck getting these little guys finished!
