A Little More Christmas Stitching

I am determined to finish Christmas is Forever before the end of the year. Only one more "moteef" left and then the rest of the verse. Highly doable, even at my slow pace, as long as I don't get too fussy about the umpteen thousand letters I have to stitch. I counted them all when I started working on it last night and realized I wasn't even halfway done. I also found a mistake so I'll be frogging two of them. I know that doesn't sound bad but I turn into Rain Man when I'm stitching a lot of letters like this, obsessively counting them over and over, adding and subtracting so I know how many I've done and how many I have left to do. If it wasn't for all my counting and re-counting, I might actually be done!

I really need to find a support group.

Bud, my love...I so get the frogging comment. And you know what's so funny about stitchers. We have to get it PERFECT, even if the mistake is only known by us, which is 99% of the time the case.

Your work looks lovely as usual. Always so well-done! :)

Thanks for the Christmas wishes...Woodboy was tickled to hear that you're fine.

Thank you for leaving a comment. On my blog, so nice to see your blog as well. My mother had made a similar tree when we were kids, we did ceramics with her. I found this one at antique store here in Maine a few years ago. I also have a green one with multi color lights, we found in an antique store in Park City, KS, when we lived in Derby, KS several moons ago. Glad it brought a nostalgic memory for you this holiday.

Keep on stitching.

I just finished an ornament and hung it on the tree about 15 minutes ago! Ha - it's never too late!!
