Lately I’ve been trying to relax a bit. I’ve been a bit stressed, so I’ve been doing small projects in front of the TV. I’ve been focussing mainly on cross stitch, as I find it quite fun. Sure, I’ve never had to patience to finish or get past one colour of a kit, but I still like doing small things. I couldn’t find any Aida cloth large enough to fit in any embroidery hoops (not that I’m a fan of those) so I ended up using some friendship bracelet thread and some embroidery canvas stuff. With no plan and no uses, this piece has an undefined future. It may just be a test piece for the pattern, or something to do while bored. I was looking up some patterns today and found a bunch in my picture folder on my computer, so I might print some out and get some Aida cloth. Small pictures would be nice on cards, tags, buttons and bookmarks, that way I can make them as I feel like it, and cut them out and use them later. Also small cross stitch designs on plastic canvas make lovely keychains.
