Stumbling over a new cross-stitch hurdle.......

Tonight, I have stumbled into the realm of being a 'serial starter'.......

Even in a phone call earlier, I'd mentioned that I was not going to start any new project until I'd finished one of my current WIPs.........

Only a few short years ago, I'd been a faithful one-project-at-a-time girl. Then I discovered the internet and all the wonderful designers and charts available. Oh and the freebies! All mine for the exploring.... I discovered the joys of S.E.X. and only recently what it meant to be S.A.B.L.E.

This evening, being too dark to continue with Papillion's 2008 SAL, I picked up 'Forever in my Heart' - Four Seasons Samplers - I checked them all - no half stitches so I could use aida - perfect for night time stitching. I selected 4 subtle pieces of hand-dyed aida, and chose 4 reasonable colours for the winter sampler....and away I went.

Serial Starter-dom here I come...............

I know exactly where you're coming from I used to only do one project at a time, and I still try to do that, not very well though.

You know it sounds like you need to invest in an Ott-Lite then you can stitch on whatever you want in the evening. They're the next best thing since sliced bread!
