CROSS STITCH

 
My photocopied pattern
The original pattern
My colorful threads
 
 
 
Mentioned yesterday that I wanted to try something new...well I didn't because I've got visitors. When they left, I saw the pile of clothes just screaming for me to iron them.....and being a Sunday, I need to iron the clothes especially the kids uniforms and also hubby's shirts and trousers. But actually, I enjoyed ironing...must be weird to some huh! I love anything to do with clothes...buying, wearing, washing and ironing except one...sewing! But I am always facinated with people who knows how to sew their own things. I've tried learning how to sew from my ex-nanny in Sri Lanka, but then, ah....maybe because I am just not interested...so I left it. But when I see her sewing...it looked so easy! The only sewing that I love to do is cross-stitching! And even that...I still have one unfinished project....it had stayed that way since....more than 10 years ago I think...hehehe...bad bad bad mama! I know it's bad to leave things undone, but my reason being....can't even read the chart to finish it...the photocopied chart is in a very SAD state.....This is because, I do a lot of stitching in the bus on the way to work and back. I had to travel about an hour on the bus to get to the office. So, to and fro makes 2 hours, not including the waiting time. So rather than just let the time passed doing nothing, I stitch! Some of you must be wondering, how can I stitch in a moving bus...well...I guess, I'm just used to it. The funny thing is, I can stitch in the bus but I can't stitch in a moving car. I'll get dizzy easily. And while stitching, I made quite a number of friends, old and young...because they are just curious how I can stitch in a bus. And everytime my chart flew out of my hands, or my scissors or my needles fell, they'll know the owner of those things...hahahaha!



But just now, I found the original chart and still in a readable condition. So maybe one day, I'll start again and try to finish off the project. There's not so much left, but was quite lost as where I've stopped because I think, another reason why I stopped the first time was, I counted and stitched something wrong somewhere....Maybe, I'll just use my 'creativity' to alter whatever I can, so that I don't have to do any unpicking! I hate to unpick stitches!
