I broke down and bought some crafts.
I mentioned that I’m not the craftiest person in the world, but I can sort of cross-stitch. Just don’t look at the back of my fabric.
I haven’t cross-stitched in years because I don’t really enjoy the offerings of patterns in most stores. There is something so out-of-date about them. However, you know how social media leads you to new recommendations from time to time and I was led to The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. Seriously cute patterns, if you like kitschy…and I do!
I decided to do the cactus to get my needles primed, and then I’m going to take on the fall sampler. The sampler seems so fun because you get a weekly pdf for 5 weeks with the patterns. I think that will help me to keep from feeling overwhelmed. Stitching a little here and a little there will be my speed.
I may be in this just for the scissors.
