Fun thing

I won a pile of counted cross stitch linen on ebay, and I've been stitching as much as I can. I think this vacation just isn't going to be long enough! I found this free pattern on this blog.

The picture is from Nina's blog - another great blog for inspiration.

Enjoy!

There aren't enough hours in the day are there???

I love needlework because it's so portable. I can't use linen -- the thread count is too small, But I love it on Oatmeal Aida Cloth. My daughter stressed over money and what to get me for Christmas. I told her I'm easy-- A handle of DMC Thread and I feel loved....

I wish you could stitch to your heart's content too:)

Great win. Can't see well enough to cross stitch anymore, but love seeing that people still do it.
Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like a lovely win, and no, there are never enough hours in the day for the things we enjoy.

Very sweet stitchery, and lucky ebay win...you go girl! I agree just not enough hours in a day, but then we would just crowd more into it, if we had more! Have a blessed week!

So fun to win!!! I have so many things I want to do and am hoping not to get paralyzed but keep moving forward. It's all satisfying and fun, let's take all the pressure off and enjoy!

Good win for you! I had planned on being crafty for a while today, but my accumulated messes are preventing me...of course, if I'd step away from the computer right now, I might be able to fit some in! See you later!!
