I spent the weekend with my foot up. I am so bad at sitting, but I did it. Ruby was super happy to hang out with me.
One of the best things for me to do when I have to have my leg up is cross stitch.
That’s what I did. I finished one up and started another. I love the selection process and picking out the next one to work on…next up a mini ABC sampler…as of writing this, I don’t have a single stitch in place. I just know that one is up next.
One of the last times I wrote about cross stitching I asked for some advice on framing. Well I got lots including some suggestions to buy some thrifted frames and have Hubby cut them down for me. Well after watching a few youtube videos, here is our first joint effort on cutting the frame down, framing and mounting my cross stitch piece.
All of the things I am working on now are small so they aren’t hard to do.
We were happy enough with our efforts that I found and measured more frames for him to cut and hopefully after this week, I’ll have a couple more framed. I can start back to work but I have to still keep my leg up as much as possible so evenings, I’ll be working on these.
I am so happy that I figured out how to cross stitch again. I need something to do when I’m taking it easy. Cross stitch has been perfect.
One more question for you cross stitchers…Do I put glass in when I mount them? Hubby thinks I should. Me, I don’t know.
