Last August, while trying to distract myself from those early pregnancy fears, I started a new cross stitch project. In the intervening months, I’ve worked on it at various stages.
Cross stitch is more time consuming than you’d imagine though, and between work and life getting in the way, my progress has been painfully slow.
This week, however, while I wait (impatiently now) for something to happen, I’ve been happy to spend hours working on my project, and tonight I sewed the final bead in place. Now all that’s left is to assemble it – but I think that given the week that’s in it, I’ll wait until this little one arrives and embroider her name and date of birth on the back of it, so it can become her first decoration on our family Christmas tree this year. Surely I’ll get that done between now and December!
