Last week, when I was working on Elijah's birth sampler, I had to prowl in the cross stitch cabinet for an alphabet chart. My cabinet is not as organized as I would like for it to be so there was a lot of drawer opening and closing and shifting of things trying to find one particular book with the right alphabet.
I opened one drawer and oh my, there underneath a magnet board was my "Angel of Cross Stitch". I found this chart several (many ?) years ago and fell in love with idea of having her on the wall finished, framed and smiling down at me while I work away on projects.
I was fascinated with the fact that every DMC color skein (at that time) was used in the chart and that she looked so lovely. I bought the chart and the fabric. I bought black Aida because I thought she would stand out so much better than on white. Of course, I was younger and my eyes were better. I have worked on her off and on for several years and had put her away because of baby commitments. Three grandchildren and one on the way take precedence over crafty things, right?
Anyway, when I saw her lying there all lonesome and forgotten, I was so sad. She told me she wasn't mad at me but that she had missed me and wondered if I would ever get back to working on her again. (Yes, I have conversations with my crafts.)
So here is a picture of her. Isn't she pretty? Of course I have to use a light box under the fabric to see the holes, but oh, she's so lovely and now I am itching to start working on her again.
I will have to wait awhile before I can start again because of more grandchild commitments but she will be finished and she will be framed and she will be loved.
As always, thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a great day wherever you might be.
