Hello My Lovelies!
No one could ever mistake me for an old Southern Belle, you can look at my picture and know that definition is far from the truth. But I will admit that I like doing certain crafts… yes, I like crafts! Big whoop, wanna fight about it?! ( Macie will laugh at this later) I enjoy coloring and roaming around Michael’s, Hobby Lobby and Garden Ridge in search of my next project. Growing up my mom always had my sister and I doing something artsy, from color or paint by number to latch hooking to eventually crocheting and cross stitching. At any random time, my sister can be found crocheting a scarf or an afghan. Me on the other hand, I never wanted to learn to crochet when my mom offered to teach me, cross stitching was my thing. ( I have since asked my mom to teach me so that I can make baby blankets for friends) I have made many cross stitching pieces and am currently working on one for my mom’s b’day. However, it seems that I have chosen the largest piece I have tried to date and I am not completely sure I will get it done in a week and a half… HELP!!!
My mom and I love butterflies, so I chose this as part of her June 7th b’day present.
You will note that this piece is 11 x 11… I failed to read that part when I bought it, I was distracted by all the pretty colors
This is more than I bargained for!
After 2 hours of work
After an additional 1 1/2 hours… I will make it… barely!
There is a certain solace and peace that I find in doing crafts, the concentration and beauty that comes with every design. After this… Tinkerbell! Here’s to finding what calms your soul and brings you peace.
Blessings and Happiness
