Hanging over my head

You know how some projects just hang over your head? This one is a cross stitch that my friend asked me to do, and I agreed. The kit actually had two in it and I finished the other one last year. I have worked on this on and off over the last 12 months probably, but couldn't get too excited about it because it is not my style. Once we got the Waun-a-Finish challenge going, I knew I had to get this one done. Now it is and my head is free and clear ; ) On to the next cross stitch project...my nephew's christmas stocking. It is well underway so I am hoping to spend enough time on it to have it completed by this Christmas.

I love cross-stitching, but am also struggling to find the time to do everything I enjoy doing. What a nice job you did on a very pretty project!

Your friend thanks you immensely. You did an amazing job on this very difficult piece (30 thread count linen with one strand of silk floss!!) It looks amazing in my living room. Thank you. Thank you!!

It looks great! But I agree that it would take me a while to get it done, too - not my style either.
