Leftovers for dinner (Pizza and Chili for me). Albert and scouts and Dad had tennis. Watched the food channel.
The fabric that I ordered on SATURDAY for my Christmas cross-stitch sampler came in the mail TODAY. Yikes, these people are fast. So I put my chick (previous cross-stitch project) on hold and I jumped into my new sampler. The fabric is Linen, which is an even weave, so it's a bit daunting, but I think I've gotten the hang of it (It's 28ct and I'm doing 2 over 2). I finished all the running stitches that make up the borders (it's split into 6 sections). I'm hoping to have it at least finished by Christmas, if not framed and hanging someplace. It should fit in a regular 6x9 frame, so I'm going to try and find one I like and do it myself. At least, that's the plan. The only problem is that I can't really see after I've worked on it for more than an hour and a half straight. I like working on it for long periods of time, though, and I tend not to look up at all. I realized that I was kind of looking to the side of where I needed to see so that I could see it. Very strange. And I definitely have to close my left eye (the bad one) to be more exact. Which I have to do with this even weave. I love how I pick hard projects as my first ones. e.e dorkface.
I think that's it for tonight, no Mike again. :-(
