Chickadees

I have started a cross-stitch called Chickadees in Spring. It's snowing like crazy right now in State College, so it's a nice reminder that it won't be snowy forever.


New craftiness.

I am really enjoying it. I haven't done a cross-stitch since I was about 10 years old. That cross-stitch was a teddy bear in a heart-shaped frame. I never actually finished it because I shifted a huge portion of the pattern off one stitch. After I realized what I had done, I got frustrated and gave up. But this time, I will go slowly and enjoy the picture that is forming.


Extreeeeme close-up.

I find the whole cross-stitch process a bit like tetris. :) Different shaped blocks of different colors, all falling into place. It takes more concentration than knitting, so I have a feeling it's going to take awhile. Have a great day!
