I’m so glad that I started doing regular cross-stitch updates. It’s made me do some crazy things…like this week. I actually fully finished TWO things!!!
Check out my two little pillows…no matter that they aren’t in season. I’m just thorough happy that they are finished.
A crazy thing happens to me. When I know I have to make a cross-stitch post on Fridays and I know I don’t stitch anything very quickly, I know I need to come up with something that will make the blog post a little more interesting…so, I finished these as my “a little bit more interesting” item this week.
Normally I would have let these sit for a long time and probably would have even forgotten about them. Not this time. I just tackled them.
I put it off because I want it to be perfect and I know I’m not one who can do it perfectly. So things sit. Last week I watched a floss tube of The Proper Stitcher. She was saying finished is better than perfect. Me, my philosophy has always been it’s better in the drawer so I don’t have to fret over how not perfect it is…
I decided to take her advice and just finished the two pieces.
These were both stitched in DMC floss which is supposed to be colorfast. I looked a the bottom of my iron. It looked clean so…
