cross stitch season
I've had two other projects which consisted in a large rag rug made of t-shirts and another that is beading. THAT was the first to go on hold because of the minute beading. If I have trouble seeing to cross stitch, just think what beading was like!
But it's a seasonal thing with me as well. When the cooler weather hits, I'm more inclined to cross stitch with a cozy blanket across my legs. But it's a mind set because when I lived in South East Texas, I still had the same need even though it could be 90 degrees outside!
So I'm back working on my pets' food mat. I pets because I plan to embroider all the cats and one dog on the mat. I have not a clue which ones will use it. I've had this problem before when making pet food mats and not a single animal would approach it.
I was reading more than just a few of my favorite cross stitch and blogs. There were all about stitching groups that they are involved with or wonderful shops they go to. I have to ask myself what is wrong with Texas? It's aggravating at best that I have travel some distance just to physically see the supplies that I want. The internet is great but in making such an organic craft, one needs to use the senses; smell, touch, sight to become more in tuned to that project. And sadly, I don't have the income to travel that far. And you know, mega stores like Hobby Lobby and Micheals just dont cut it.
But for now, I need to get some new 'eyes' and hopefully that will be soon.
