Feed the Birds
I found six quilt projects so close to being finished that it was astonishing! I put each one up on the wall for assessment and then developed a list of exactly what is needed to finish all six of them. I do believe that three of them will be donated to Sanctuary Village when they are finished.
I also found a partially completed counted cross stitch project that has apparently been maturing nicely in its bag for about thirty years. I am certain that I haven't done any cross stitch in at least twenty-five.
I remember acquiring the little kit. It made me think of my dear husband, who has been a devoted feeder of the birds our entire married life. He would like it. And it would look pretty on our kitchen wall. But did I have it in my to resume?
I thought about giving it away and then I thought again, remembering that there are times when I run out of quilt work to do in front of the television in the evening. I thought I'd put a plea out on Facebook to see if anyone local had one of those magnetic sheets and strip magnets that one uses for doing cross stitch. I thought someone might lend them to me.
Today I felt the need to go back downstairs and continue the organizing and possibly purging. And there in a box marked "embroidery" amidst an absolute mouse's nest of tangled floss, was a magnetic strip. So I plunged all the way in and there was the magnetic sheet! So I'm going to press the linen and let this become my travel project (yes, someday we will travel again) and also my filler project for those in-between times.
There were two additional cross stitch projects-in-progress. But I'm making no promises about them.
