Been busy around here with brewing our own beer (post on that soon), but I’ve still found time to work in a bit of embroidery. I finally finished the eggplant seed packet embroidery I had been working on forever.
And like I said I would, I worked on a smaller piece next…I was definitely in need of some instant craft gratification. I completed this little (10 cent!) rooster, and happened to have the perfect sized frame in my craft stash to put it in!
I’m working on a little cow cross stitch next, and am almost done with it already. My kitchen embroidery pieces are coming along nicely, which is great because I have a little kitchen redecorating going on this week in preparation of a string of house guests in August.
I don’t tend to have a ton of UFOs (unfinished objects)/WIPs (works in progress) around, but when I do give up, it is right at the end of a project. This one cross stitch I’ve been working on is definitely at the frustration point. I’ve been working on it for so long, completing a little each day. Now I’m almost to the end and having to force myself to finish rather than start another craft project. I have been wanting to start one of my tiny embroidery kits just because they are so small, and will give instant gratification, but then I know I would never finish this one. Almost there! I find the end of a project to be almost stressful, and this is one piece I am definitely ready to be done with.
It is especially hard to finish with a cat on my lap.
