Since hurting my back a year ago, I haven't been able to quilt. I've sorely missed having something to craft. I remember when I was much younger, like 16 or 17, I had done a couple of tiny cross stitch projects. That is something I could sit back and do and take pressure off my back, so off to Joann's I went to pick up some floss and a project. I'm thrilled to say that I very much enjoy it!! I now have a new craft!! I'm working on a wedding record for my bedroom. I've also decided to stitch Christmas ornaments for the family this year. I love snowmen and that is my holiday decor theme, so I made myself a snowman Christmas ornie. I've also started the family ones. And you know I can't be satisfied with just one or two projects, so I'm also working on a little Snowman project. I've had to take a break from those for now because my aunt requested that I make a birth record for a friend who is due in 11/11/11! It is a very detailed project. I'm nervous because I"m not that good of a stitcher yet, but I"m doing the best I can. I love curling up in the evening and listening/half watching the TV and stitching away.
