Still In the Stitching Hall of Shame...Kind Of...
I was so excited!! I was going to stitch!! Sat down in my favorite chair, picked up my project, and then...where are my scissors? I know I was using them just last night. Let's check my craft table.

Still figuring out what to do with the background. This is a large piece, about 12 inches across. I need to decide if I will dye some thread first, or finish the entire piece and then dye it. Or...who knows? I just hope I can remember that I'm working on it!
