WOW very cool! I like to sew. But it is a source of stress because the little ones like to mess with the thread and the pedal etc while I'm sewing, making it not so fun! Knitting seems easier, but maybe my kids would run off with the yarn =) How do you get yours to leave the yarn alone?
Kim, you are amazing! Love those. (Also you're so photogenic! )

I love your projects Kim! The hat is so cute!
I agree, photogenic, make cute babies, can sew, can wear stripes.....what CAN'T you do?
I cross stitch. I could sew for hours, and I like to do really big, intricate ones. I've had several framed and they're up on the walls. But then, after like 4 hours and with fading light I start getting stressed again and end up chucking my work into a bag for weeks at a time. Because looking at it will make me blow my stack. Then, after I cool off sewing seems like a good way to de-stress again

I used to love to cross stitch. I still have some old kits laying around that I never finished. I came across a couple of them in one of my craft boxes the other day and it started to rekindle that desire to get to it and finish them. I have a beautiful Christmas one that I never finished and i would love to be able to hang it on my wall for the holidays.
I found a picture of it!
Its this one:
Its done in two layers. I have the Christmas tree on the bottom layer done, and most of the fence with the garland on the top layer.
And thats it. LOL I think i have had this kit since high school. wow.
