I feel like a 10 year olld boy trying to cross-stitch!

I am frustrated!!!

Trying to stitch today....got everything set up.....working on Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow....it just would not "go." I was doubting the called for colors, could not find my picture of the whole work so I could check.....could not count right......

Okay, going to switch to BBD Blessings Be Thine....28 count from the 36 count. Boy, this 28 count seems big...it never seemed big before.....I just want to stitch a straight row and not have to concentrate so hard........I am going to read a book instead......

Now it is evening.....Sunday evening. I hate Sunday nights. I have "failed" to have a "cross-stitch" weekend again.......am I even any good at this? Don't be silly, of course you can do it. I mean you have stitched many projects to completion in the past. But none since I switched over to linen (oh except for a couple of "simple" Christmas ornaments).

Christmas ornaments??? That's it! That is what I will work on tonight while watching TV with Mike. I am not going to get my undies all in a bunch over the fact that I am in a Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow stitch along and am now behind the group.....I mean I do this for fun right? Carry on.......

I love the picture!!! That is hysterical. Be nice to yourself! Your weekends are your weekends and so what if you don't get to what you wanted to do? And so what if you are behind? I know someone who isn't even doing Hawk Run Hollow and it is really NO big deal! Just relax and cross stitch when the mood is right and if it's not the weekend it's ok and if it's not Hawk Run Hollow it's ok too. This is all for fun and creativity, remember? Have a good week, Laura!

I've been meaning to sit aside time to cross stitch too but I keep getting waylaid by books, cooking, laundry, cleaning, running errands!! Maybe next week!!

Laura,

I am the same way. I stitch great when I am at stich night or at the Country Cupboard for UFO and First Friday. When I am home, I have a difficult time stitching. I knit. What does this mean? I also used to finish projects. This was when I stitched on Aida. I don't know whether it was the design, the fabric or me, but I used to finish everything. I am reading U is for Undertown. It's great. See you at Inspired Needle Tuesday night?

Those boys are way too cute.
Take your time with Christmas. I am feeling overwhemled the closer I get to being done with villages and then too think to start a new one all over, but I love them. I can't wait for the Autumn one to come out. And then maybe I will stitch the Christmas one, so little time (sigh)

Reading you backwards, so I see what you mean! Ha! I fail at art weekends all the time. In fact, I haven't succeeded at one since Christmas!
