A big thank you to Mrs. Douglas, who taught me to do cross-stitch back in grade school. (I believe she was also the math teacher, and I distinctly remember her always complaining to the boys about their need to wear deodorant -- I believe math class may have been right after recess.)
Just doing a little stitching to ease my self back into creative work. I'm following a pattern, but had to improvise on the colors, so there was a little room for thought. And now that I've started this piece, I have plans for a year long sampler. I love how working on one little project can get the cogs and wheels turning.
