Mostly a cross-stitcher's pictorial blog with occasional amokness on unrelated topics.

A finish in an ongoing WIP
I finished the February block of "Crabby All Year." I disliked part of the design so I had to "fix" it. The design is supposed to be a trash can with love thrown away in it. To me it looked like a badly rendered old-fashioned soda glass with weird-colored glop in it. After closer inspection, I figured out it was in reality a badly rendered or heavily stylized metal trash can. So I "fixed" it and stitched it my way.
Now that I am finished with February's block two days into February, I have to decide what to stitch on next. Another Texas Christmas ornament? Do I put in time on "that durn flag"? Or do I stitch on "Bone Cheeks"?
Howdy! I'm a Native Texan living in Texas with my dear husband (DH) of 25+ years. We share our home with Annie, a rescued Jack Russell terrier. I'm past the half-century mark. My main hobby is cross-stitching. My other hobbies include reading, and finishing and/or staining and/or painting anything DH makes out of wood and brings into the house. I occasionally sew when needed. We live in the country in an old hunting cabin that we're renovating ourselves. We're card-carrying tightwads.
