Cross Stitching a Little House

I thought I would share a little cross stitching project I have been working on the past few weeks. I started this cute Victorian house a few years ago, and for some reason I put it away. (I know I am not the only one that has put away unfinished projects!)

This Victorian house cross stitch is almost finished.

Since I have been on a medical leave, I found that my recliner was the most comfortable position for me to be in. Since I couldn’t make cards or work on my computer from that position, I decided that cross stitching was the best thing I could do. I forgot how much I enjoy it, even though it is more of a challenge these days with my ‘older’ eyes. I found that I could keep better track of where I was on the pattern if I used a colored pencil to mark off the stitches I had completed.

Since I was climbing the walls, I switched from our family room recliner to a recliner we have in the living room for a change of scenery. Using a tray for my supplies was very convenient.

I still have a bit of recuperating to do, so I hope to have this finished soon and it will look like this picture.

I am not sure if I will frame it or make a pillow. I would love to hear any other ideas on what I could do with this after I complete it!

I hope you have a wonderful, creative day!
