I don't have a progress picture of Sara today. It never fails, as soon as I get close to finishing something, I find a mistake and set myself to frogging. Oh,well. My goal is to have Sara finished before the end of the month. I am still on track...as long as I pay attention!
As I was going through stash this weekend, I came upon my very first piece of cross stitch. I was nine years old when I stitched this and I just had to share it with you. It was a kit that was given to me by a close family friend. Everytime I look at it, I smile. I can't help it. I smile because of its simplicity, the memories attached and well, because it was my first project! I've come a long way, baby!
Cute, huh? Well, I thought that I would take a picture of the BACK of the piece. Now this is going to make you laugh!
Holy smoke! Look at all of those knots! Now, I am still proud of my little girl, but I cannot help but think of the antique samplers that other nine year olds stitched. Mine is a far cry from those girlhood embrodieries but I guess we all have to start somewhere!
I hope that I was able to bring a little giggle to you today. I will be framing my "I Am Special" girl soon and I will share it with you when she is finished. I plan hang her with my other needlework...a reminder of how far I have come!
