Unseasonal Stitching

It's been a long time since I did any cross-stitching. I used  to do a ton of it, back before I learned to knit and quilt. After I broke my knee for the first time, there was some negative crap that took the joy out of it for me and every time I've thought about starting up again those memories have popped back up. 

Last week, when the boys and I were going through the thrift shop looking at things we don't need, I found this ninety-nine center cross stitch kit. It was factory sealed and has only a few colors and it's kind of cute. 

Even with the grid lines, I'm making mistakes left and right. I think I've  caught them all. If I haven't, it's just a cheap little kit and the world won't end.

But I'm hoping I can get back  into the swing of cross stitching and tackle some of the more ambitious projects that I've still got up in my stash.

I did birth samplers for both kids and then I haven't cross-stitched anything since (nearly 30 years).
I am on the lookout for one of those thrifted cute kits just for fun.
Enjoyed your thrift shop temptations post - I posted an adorable ceramic flowered donkey recently. I was tempted ...

I hope you have fun doing a bit of cross stitch. It is my go-to hobby when I lose the quilting bug. I love the Halloween theme. Have a great day! --Andrea
