When I was in Canada in July, I bought this fantastic stitching book. I had looked at it last year and resisted, but then I found it on sale for $5 this time around and had to make it mine. I'm terrible about buying books while traveling -- my back hates me!
But I digress. This is a book I've never seen in US bookstores and I'm guessing it's because it's published in the UK. I have since found it here on Amazon and it says "[IMPORT]" in big letters in the description. Oooh -- fancy!
There are a lot of great projects in this book, but the one that really captured my attention was this sweet Christmas tree:
As much as I love that tree, however, I am hesitant about cross-stitching on linen. Tiny, tiny stitches, Shayne. Tiiiiiny. As a fellow lover of near-instant-gratification craft projects, I'm sure you understand.
I don't know that I have the stamina to complete a cross-stitch project on linen. Even a relatively small one like this. But, oh! Sequins for ornaments! Very enticing.
Can she do it, folks? Only time will tell...
