See those stitches up there? It took me about 3 hours of work to do that! Of course, some of that was because I haven’t done any cross stitching for over 14 years, and I needed to remind myself how to read a pattern. Some of it was because I let the floss get knotted once and I had to cut it out, pull out some stitches and fix my mistake. In other words, it will begin to go more quickly now that I am getting back in the swing of things. But this project is going to take me a while, I think.
In related news, I want to start a crafting group. I want to have people to talk to while I stitch, or people to come up with ideas for new projects (in my copious amounts of free time that need to be filled, 😉 ), people who understand why I like doing this stuff. I don’t care if I meet with people who are doing the same kind of craft that I am doing at any given time, I just want to hang out with other crafters while I work on my projects. Any suggestions on starting a group? Anyone local want to do crafts with me?
