Since I've been less active, due to an injury to my Achilles Tendon, I've filled my sitting around time with Cross Stitch. I purchased the supplies for 3 smaller pieces, 1 very large piece and 1 extremely large piece at the same time 4 years ago, and I've not completed any of them. So I committed myself to putting aside the 3 smaller pieces (Maggie the Mess Maker, Frederick the Literate and Leonardo) for a time. I put aside the extremely large piece as well, (The Sistine Chapel) and focused solely on the large piece (Noah's Sub). This has turned out to be a good idea, the Noah's Sub is almost finished in terms of stitching, I should have all the stitching done my Monday, then I can go back and outline. I should have the entire piece ready for framing before Christmas. Yeah, then I will focus on The Sistine Chapel. The 3 smaller pieces will become traveling pieces, and pieces I work on when I need a break from the big piece.
