I bought this little 5 x 7 cross stitch kit when I was pregnant with Alana, over fourteen years go. You read it right, fourteen years. I wanted to put this in her room, but I guess I should have held on to it a few more years and maybe put the names of my grand kids on it..NOT THAT I’M IN A RUSH!
I’m really not that slow a crossstitcher. I just kept losing the kit and it became outta sight outta mind. Then, Wednesday as I was cleaning out my art room I came across it. I had debated on whether to finish this or not. But since it’s AEDM, I thought, “What the Heck!” So I sat down, and I made myself get it done. I don’t find cross stitching very satisfying ’cause I’m not very good at it. You should see the back of this one..it looks like a thread and knot war, it’s Horrrrrible!
I had also found two more kits that need to be finished. One is soccer themed and I had bought that when Alana was in the 6th grade and the other is some kind of flower garden. Somehow I will have to make myself complete them, because I hate to waste more than I hate cross stitching, lol. I could throw these in my handy-dandy travel bag. When I get bored on trips, it could give me something to do. I’m on a time crunch with the soccer theme. I only have four years to finish that one, and I don’t think I can make the deadline before Alana graduates..
Have a creative day!
Be Well and Happy!

I understand the “delayed” project. She will surely appreciate this more now, than she could have as an infant. I am working on a baby blanket for my grandson who is now 8 months old. If I don’t finish it by Christmas, then maybe for his first birthday, or maybe by the time he starts kindergarten : )
Gosh, I have two cross stiches somewhere and I am not going to dig them out…not a hope! You are being very productive …LOL
So sweet! And yay for finding unfinished projects to tackle!
I started a dragon when our son was born. I´m commited to finish it before his 15th birthday (that´s next February! ) so I understand the out of sight comment. 🙂
Better late than never huh?????
