“Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn't the work he is supposed to be doing at the moment.”

TIME:  8:14 PM
PLACE:  My desk
SUBJECT:  Cross-stitch project

Well, here is the progress I have made on my cross-stitching.  It has been stalled a little by that pesky housework and those whiney children, but I think I’ve been pretty successful in ignoring those two impediments. *wink*  The design is actually turning out a lot brighter and nicer than the picture in the book.  I decided to use 3 strands of floss vs. the 2 strands normally recommended for the Aida 14 cloth I’m using for the canvas.  Yeah, I’m a rebel.
