No I am not rushing the seasons but if you plan to have a craft ready for Easter, you should be working on it now. Easter is in March this year so I am busy working on a piece I hope to turn into a cushion.
I am not sure what I am going to work on when I finish this piece as I have done so much cross stitch lately. I guess I will head to The Cross Stitch Peddler and see what is new in the cross stitch world.
I was talking with my 85 year old mother the other day and she was working on a pair of pillowcases. She confided in me that it was driving her crazy as it was stamped cross stitch and not the usual embroidery that she loves doing. I told her to put it up and get out something that made her happy. In fact I told her that I would bring it home with me and work on it as I like cross stitch. Life is too short to spend your leisure time doing things that aggravate you! I have been known to just toss a piece of cross stitch that has turned out to be a disappointment. This view of life goes along with my reading rule. Once I turned 50 I decided that if the book did not pull me in in the first 50 pages, toss it and find another one. Time is precious!!
