My cross-stitch project that took me 2 years to complete...mainly because of Stella, boredom with cross-stitch that is 18 count vs 14 count, and moving to Hawaii. 18 count is tiresome because that means there are 18 "squares" in one inch vs. 14 squares. This pattern was also difficult for me to follow because of all the "background" color. I couldn't just make a mistake and fudge it like I do with all of my other projects. A mistake on this meant ripping it out and starting over, and with all the other distractions going on in my life I made A LOT of mistakes.
My other recently finished "birthday" project.
Last week Tom took his contractor exam and he feels confident about his score and we should find out the results this week or next.
Tom is at our weekly market gig now, and the kids and I will join him in a bit. He talks solar and has met some good customers at market and I give Laundry demonstrations. Yes, I bring some of our laundry to market and I show folks how easy it is to wash by hand using a breathing mobile washer and a hand wringer. Reeve and Kyle also have plans of selling something at market...more on that (hopefully) next week. Aloha!!
