Hmm. I'm going to have to work on learning how to take pictures
of my cross stitch projects so that they turn out fairly true to the
original colours of the threads used, and are also in focus. I was so
eager to type this post however that I couldn't wait for daylight to
take the pictures.
Anyways, here is my first finish of 2007. It's a Prairie Schooler
design from the 2005 issue of Just Cross Stitch Christmas
Ornaments. The top picture is blurry, but shows up the truer
colours. The bottom one is lighter in colour but is also sharper.
Well, relatively speaking. Just squint your eyes a bit, make 'em
go cross eyed, and keep looking at the two pictures until they
merge together into one clear picture. Yup. It works especially
well after a couple of glasses of boozy stuff.
Tomorrow DH and I start the job that everyone hates after the
Christmas season is over. Taking down, and packing away, the
Christmas ornaments. Ugh! It'll take one day to pack everything
up and store it away. Then another day to clean and get all the
normal nick nacks out of storage and restored to their original places.
That is, if I can remember where all of those original places were.
And then, over the next week or so, DH and I will probably keep
stumbling across Christmas ornaments that we missed in one room
or another, which then have to be "stored" somewhere until next Xmas
season. One year it took us about a month to notice an ornament that
was hanging on the door knob of the door that leads to the lower level
of the house. We passed it every day, multiple times a day, but never
noticed it. Doh!
