Cross-stitch takes a LONG time
I started a cross-stitched family tree for the new edition to the family who was born last November. I started it during the school summer vacation last year. I have quite a bit finished, but am anticipating being able to do more in a couple of weeks when school is out again this year. It's taking SO long that I've asked a friend to finish it in the case of my early demise! It's taking a LONG time. The friend laughed, but promised to carry through if I'm hit by a truck or something. I hadn't done any needlework for DECADES. I don't remember previous efforts taking this much time, but almost forty years probably makes me a wee bit slower too!
