A blog for a craftaholic who has got back to cross stitch after a number of years...and someone who also has a problem with quilting and knitting as well.

UFO's from before the Dawn of Time
I have been blaming the Crafty Princess for getting me started on Golden Wood - as if somehow it is all her fault - so I say here publicly that I had a cross stitch problem from an early age. I offer you photographic evidence. (see above) The ABC was for the child of a friend started about 23 years ago when Lynn became pregnant.....child is now 22 and I have got up to E for Echidna.....pitiful effort. The other the cross stitch runner on linen was started even further back into the mists of time.....when I was in my early 20's - which makes it at least 30 years ago. At least I still have the pattern for the ABC and the threads that came in the kit.....as for the linen runner.....no pattern and no thread....so basically NO CHANCE of ever finishing it.....but it is interesting like some strange artifact dug up in an archaeological site and displayed in the British Museum.....can you image my partially completed runner sitting next to the Rosetta Stone ...... ??
