I did cross stitch! I am very excited. BozoBoy’s mum gave me a small child’s pattern years ago when I showed interest in the amazing work she and my sister-in-law did. Last night I started it. As it turns out it was quite easy and mentally relaxing. I will have it finished in no time.
I also decided to crochet a blanket for my friend who is due in June. I finally got a pattern I like and away we go. I figure I will have it done in about 3 weeks if I keep it up. The material is that typical baby trio of colors. It has been at least 5 years since I have even attempted any crocheting projects. I am still a novice. I plan on purchasing a book soon that demonstrates the stitches. I need to visually see them to learn them. Reading them does me no good.
All this crocheting is making me feel more maternal. Not sure how I feel about that.
