Santa's crotch

Yes, that's one of the things I have been toying with - stitching Santa's crotch. It doesn't look like much yet. You will have to watch it grow. (ooh dear, how does that sound? I mean you will have to watch it progress as I post on here).

Earlier this week I was stitching my embroidery and embellishment ready for teacher tomorrow night (oh yes, I must show you a picture soon).

We were stitching crosses and I found it quite therapuetic. So I thought...hmm... I haven't done any cross-stitch for about 12 years (i.e. since I took up quilting in a big way)... this could be nice. I opened a drawer and found this cross-stitch kit in its packet.

There is a heck of a lot of work in this, but blow it... I don't have enough projects on the go .. LOL!! I've now got 41 projects on the go, but who cares??? It doesn't need any preparation. It's the handwork to take on the go at the moment...

I forgot you actually need to count with cross-stitch, but that hasn't taken away all the enjoyment. After all, there's quite a bit left to do on Santa's crotch.

HILARIOUS post...I always check out your site when I'm perusing, but I have to say the title of your post grabbed me...delightful! LOL

I used to cross-stitch ALL THE TIME...not so much anymore, but a sampler every now and then really grabs me and I'm mesmerized.

I wish you continued success with Santa's crotch...(giggles).

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

What's one more project, lol. I like to do a bit of embroidery from time to time as well, I just have to squeeze it in somehow. This one looks like a ton of stitching.

Cross-stitch, gotta love it, it's almost a no brainer to work on! Give me a sampler and I am a very happy camper. How many times can one stitch the alphabet...a...b...d...e, seems that I might need a little practice. VBG. What's another project. Life is too short to be bored.

Blissfully Stitching,
