Someone in cross_stitch mentioned Passione Ricamo and now I have another designer I'd love to buy charts from. Looking through their designs, I came across Once upon a time... (a fairy secret love) and immediately thought "In blonde and dark brunette...". After I finish Lavender & Lace's The Wedding for my sister, I want to do something just for me that I can justify the cost of having professionally framed and this would be an interesting choice. (I have a growing collection of finished, unframed pieces because I am cheap and haven't learned how to frame pieces over 5x7".)

my god, woman, what patience!
i like 7 count plastic canvas, cause i can usually be done in this lifetime.
*groans* i've not done anything in a long time, and killi and scott are making orders for their house, the huge halloween witch, the santas in the moons, the vases...i'm sunk.

I find stitching soothing, so a lot of the time when I'm working on something it's because I need some stress release or time to mentally process things. I'd get more done with a good light, but I've been putting that off because I bought a new magnifying lamp for Christmas 2003 and I feel bad buying another one so soon.

My sister requested that I do "The Wedding" for her, but I don't think she had any clue how long it would take. (:

um, eons? the big stuff killi and scott want, they take weeks of almost constant stitching. each.
funny how dark they make homes. if i were queen of the world? (here i go again...) i'ld make it a law to put skylights and windows and built in lamps all over the homes anyone builds. cause i say so.

I think it has to do with finding the right craft for you. I mean, I can spend hours and hours and hours working on some piece of cabinetry or a cloth painting, but ask me to hand stitch something and 20 minutes into it I'm bored and angry.

If it makes you angry, it's probably not a good way to relax.

LOL

Oh, that's just coloring, dear. You know I'm actually auburn. (Nerdsprout's natural hair color comes from me, not her mother.)
