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.

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