I've been very excited. I've finished the second biggest homemade Christmas present I've ever made. And all I have to say is she better like it or else. It has taken me about 6 months to make. Now on to the next two. Boy, I'm going to need a few extra months before Christmas comes, can we repeat September and October. That should give me enough time to finish these and start the others and finish before Thanksgiving. Though it has been fun looking at cross stitch websites for stuff. I've found so many pattern books I want, and I've only been looking in the Christmas and transportation sections. I've noticed I've changed my liking in crafts too. I've never been a girly girl, I've always been a sort of Tom boy, but now I want to stitch cars and trains and frogs and all those boy stuff. It is a different challenge than the normal flowers and butterflies girly stuff I've been doing. And I'll enjoy every minute as soon as I can sit down to make it.
