although i gave up every other craft for quilting, i did keep counted cross-stitch stuff on hand and have a few projects i'd like to make. this is one of those "in progress" things for some time now and have vowed it WILL be done in 2015. my desire to make a sampler and a stocking morphed into this which is not quite half done. have had to take out a couple of sections and am thinking about taking out the first row of the verse too...for some reason used 3 strands instead of 2....but will wait until closer done for a decision on that. it is one of those projects that requires intense, constant concentration and sticky sheets to make sure to follow the chart closely. of course, it won't be just for Christmas....intend to hang it year round. *** baking and gifts are done so getting the binding for the shenandoah ready. the table to tie it goes up this morning and will get done over the next few days no doubt. then it's the hawaiian's turn and i am so looking forward to get that basted and start the quilting. *** in the meantime, enjoying cold but not frigid weather and definitely no snow, but rain. makes it easier for family to get together when roads are navigable. hoping holiday prep is going well in your home.....and thinking of those who are needy and sick, for those who just manage to survive another day regardless of the season.....
