I decided to take a quilting break and tackle a to do that's been on the list for a while.
I've been working on this cross stitch pattern on and off for the last 2 years. Notice all the holes in the reflection of the sun set/rise? I got frustrated because of the randomness of the stitches, so I took a break from it. I finished the rest of the pattern (minus some stitches that require some blue thread that I ran out of) and was ready to start back stitching the outlines when I realized I had to conquer this fearful task.
And I did it! I didn't even complain in the process. It was manageable. And I feel soooooo good having it done. Now all those animals really look happy. Before, I felt their judgmental stares. Why hadn't I finished their ocean yet? Now they are delighted, feeling quite swimmingly I'd say.
And here's a little quilt inspiration. I love tile work! And I love that I can get inspiration out in the world. So much fun looking for it. Like a giant, never-ending, rule-less scavenger hunt.
See you soon!
