I don't know how or when I became interested in stitching. I have always admired artistic people and their products, all sorts of them. In the early nineties (1992 or '93?), I decided I just had to do a project in one of the books my mother got in the mail. It was a very ambitious project. While I enjoyed it tremendously, I was just out of school, working nights, and very busy in the daytime. Then I moved to New York, a dream come true! There I loved my volunteer job, worked crazy amounts, met my sweet husband, my mother became ill, etc etc etc . . . All those years my cross stitch sat folded up in a bag. Finally, in approx 2007 or 2008 my sisters and I decided to bring stitching projects on a group vacation to enjoy the evenings of visiting once children were tucked in bed. That is the first time my project had seen daylight in over a decade! It was a lot of fun to talk and laugh while stitching. Still, I didn't make regular time to work on my project. Eventually, I couldn't wait to finish it. Done in 2011!!!
Sadly, I have only put about 40 stitches in Rebecca Robinson since my last post a couple of weeks ago. That has been terribly disappointing! I am desperate to get back to work on her! We have had so much company and work has been a real challenge. Still, it was wonderful to see Faye's amazing progress and absolutely lovely work on her RR!!! Perhaps this week will be one for staying up late stitching . . .
