So did you ever start a project thinking this is gonna be a snap! and then 7 years later wonder where it all went wrong?
When I moved in with my husband it was the fall and I was real excited about our 1st Christmas together. I thought it would be nice to make something to commemorate our 1st holiday that we could keep forever.
With that in mind I went to the local Michael's store and found this lovely kit for a cross stitch tree skirt. Perfect I thought, I am a whiz at cross stitch, I can have this done in no time!
Well as you can see it was a little more work than I anticipated although all through the next year I worked on it diligently when ever I could find a spare minute. I got pretty far and was very proud of myself, however, I also got burned out on the project.
Since that 1st year I have picked up the project every now and again but never with the same vigor that I had the 1st year. In fact since I have moved in to my new home over 2 years ago I have not touched it at all.
So with this being a new year I have decided to make yet another pledge to myself to finish this darn tree skirt for Christmas 2009. At my house Christmas goes up Thanksgiving weekend so I will have until then to finish.
As I make progress I will up-date on the blog. Wish me much luck and persistence as I endeavor to meet the challenge ahead!
