I had this kit sitting around for years. How many years? I don’t even know. 8? 9? Forever. I had gotten bored with cross stitch and put it aside. However, my recent forays into hand embroidery rekindled my interest. At least, it rekindled it enough to pull the kit out of the closet and start stitching while I was waiting for the materials I had ordered for another project to arrive. Halfway through I was getting pretty bored again, but I powered through knowing that if I put it down I would never pick it up again. While I don’t really like the pattern (another reason it was stashed away so long) it is good to have finished it instead of having another abandoned project haunting me.
