Recently I rediscovered the soothing, meditative qualities of cross stitch. For Christmas I received a lovely quilt book that incorporates some cross stitch projects as well. Immediately I knew I wanted to make one of the projects which is an agenda cover. I got to work and last week I finished it! Now I want to start another cross stitch project despite having a "project" list going that's filled with sewing projects. I think, however, that with cross stitch I am being reminded to throw out the lists, slow down and just enjoy the process.
