A few weeks ago I posted some things that I like to create – my blue knitted items went with the Blue Weekly Photo Challenge.
Today I’m posting a photo of my cross-stitch. This is a long term project, I think I have been working on this particular item for at least ten years. My previous flatmate used to joke that it was to be finished in time for my future (as yet unplanned) daughter’s 21st birthday.
I’ve made a lot of progress on it since then but it is still in the process of being created. Now I have dreams that it will be a feature of my country-style kitchen in the house that we will eventually build after we return to Australia.
A future family heirloom no doubt, to be handed down through the generations!
Ah yes perhaps this will be so.
Thanks so much for visiting and leaving a lovely comment.
This is really beautiful. You should be proud as cross-stitching is, I feel, something that not people people do any more.
A very heartfelt thank you, Colline.
I can just imagine your cross stitch hanging up in your future kitchen as we sip on a nice cup of tea and natter about the garden. As for my long term projects, I have been working on a particular novel for about six years and envisage it will another six – ten years before it is finished. Rather than being a case of procrastination, like good cheese, this story needs time to age.
I love your analogies Marianne. I gather this is separate from your Lucy stories then?
Yes, I will have to make sure to identify all the herbs in the cross stitch so that I can make sure they are also in my garden. I’d love to have you around for tea 🙂
Yes, this will be a book for adults, so quite different from my usual stuff. But for now, it’s back to the children’s books …
