Christmas is coming...

This cross-stitch was in its packet (unopened) for about 12 years... I cracked it open last December for some hand-stitching that doesn't require preparation.
However, counted cross-stitch does require concentration or it gets mucked up!
I've picked it up from time to time over the last few months, but I am listening to audio books from the library at the moment, and I am much more able to focus on a chart and listen to books than "watch" something on the telly and cross-stitch.
Why am I working on the cross-stitch so much? I must confess, I bought a new cross-stitch (it's the Arnott's label including parrot on a black background), and I don't want to start it until I finish this one.
Oh, and also Christmas is coming.
