The Start So Far...
Here is the beginning of Death By Cross Stitch.
From the left lion over to the edge is a page width, from that squirrel tail to the left is another page width. I am not quite to the top of the page yet. I'm already fussy about which back stitches to omit, or just plain change. Fill in the parts I like till I feel inspired I guess. At that point the piece will have 'weight', and I can start to feel balance. But that left to right measurement is 6.5 inches and 4 inches upward in this photo.
Life is a bit like swimming in molasses lately. It just takes hours and days to do one thing. It's to the point of being absurd. I just keep trying, but seriously - I would not hire me to do anything. It's laughable, and I'm trying to laugh about it. I know there are people around me with real problems. So I am happy that my only problem is that I'm not making progress in the things I need to do. I AM making progress, but I'm am the snail or the turtle in this race - and I do keep trying.
