For the Record

I know, I know.  You're bored stiff...

This post is really for my record. Just to reassure myself that I'm actually making progress. At around 20 stitches per inch, this is a slow process.
Yesterday I spent precious time I don't have cataloging my DMC thread. I only needed 46 out of about 450 solid colors!
I found an Etsy seller with very, very reasonable prices and ordered the last 46. Can't wait!


  1. The reason I don't do counted cross stitch anymore is because it just I have 2 based on P. Buckley Moss prints that I started more than 20 years ago and still cannot make myself pick them up. (And, still, I can't make myself throw them out!)

  2. Wow! That is just WOW! I have a stocking that I started for my son when he was in the womb....he's 17 now. Maybe I'll pick it up again and give it a go. lol


  3. That sounds like a serious thread collection! Your piece looks amazing so far... 20 stitches per inch? That's serious dedication.
