Craftacular SaturdayPosted: February 17, 2013
DT and I have had a lovely weekend, how was yours?
My bff Nancy and I had another crafty Saturday….this month we tackled cross stitching. AKA three-ish hours spent where I basically accomplished nothing.
But you’ll see that in a sec. 🙂
My project was a baby bib because….Nancy is going to be a MAMMA in a few months! (I politely asked her to forget/ignore what I’m working on, heehee.)
Nancy found these cute towels and fun iron-on patterns for her Saturday stitching.
There is certainly a learning curve to this craft. A couple of things I realized:
- You have to pull apart the thread strands and use a certain amount for each section, as dictated by the pattern.
- Outside of the color code, I have no idea what I’m doing. My stitches are a mess and I need help.
- This takes FOR. EVER.
We started a little after 2:00, and by 6:00, here’s where we landed….
Nancy’s towel is precise and adorable.
My bib….has a flower, beak, and half a bird.
Nancy’s child might be five years old by the time I get this done. Eeep.
Oh well, no matter! We gabbed, listened to music, and stitched the afternoon away – that’s what craft days are all about, right? Followed by a delicious dinner out with our hubsters, total bonus.
Delightful day with my lovely Nan! We’re super-stitchers. Word. 😉
