Everything Old is New Again

When I was young I was insane. How do i know this? Because I am working on the cross stitch Christmas stocking I picked out as a young bride. It’s intricate with many floss changes and blending. Thankfully, cross stitching is easy, because I haven’t cross stitched in years. Here is the pattern.

Yes, that date is correct. It’s nearing 26 years since I started it. I’ve made 4 stockings and a slew of ornaments. Now that my eyes are worse it’s hard to see those tiny blocks but I will finish it. Alas I have a ways to go. This is all I’ve done:

It is slow going. Quilting is much faster but I am stubborn. And eventually I will win, er, finish.

Maybe by Christmas. 2020.

    When it’s all done you can feel free to cross stitch my name along the top and send it to me. Oh and put some Christmas presents in it. I can wait, I’m a patient person. Just don’t wait to long to finish it, I might not be around by 2020. If I am I might not know what it’s for and wonder why you only sent me one sock.

    See, you not the only crazy person on the planet…
