like the stress and I was having a hard time following a chart. I then took up quilting. I started quilting in 1988 (I think) and quilted until 5 years ago. I still have tons of quilts to make and to finish. Then I was introduced to basket weaving. I still weave but not as often as I use to. One only has so much display space and storage space which is very limited in the homes that are built in Washington State. I also bead. I made some jewelry but saw a beaded art doll and that was it. I love the feel of a very small beaded object in my hands.
So now I'm back to counted cross stitch. This is my first finish so far. It's a Lizzie Kate Chart Season Baskets. This is Spring. It's on a scroll frame because the plan is to stitch them vertically as one long picture. But I tend to over think everything and I'm stalled. I don't know if I should stitch around each one to separate them or not. Maybe just boarder them all when they're done. And I do still have th option to cut it and frame them separately. The flash on my camea also washed out the colors. Its really nice bight colors.
I think I've made up for not posting very often. Now if I could figure out the whole blogging site so mine looks organized and pretty like everyone elses. Hope you all had a great day doing what ever makes you happy.
