That should be a thing, Halloween in July. The old time radio station is playing Christmas episodes and I'm convinced that they use the same ones every year. Either that, or Jack Benny always makes the same jokes when he's shopping for presents.
I think the fun part is behind me. There's just that last stretch of orange to stitch and then the back stitching. That's never been my favorite part of cross-stitch projects, but it's worth it in the end.
