It started as a dream project, with the intention of framing them to join my other Precious Moments collection. My love for Precious Moments figurines prompted me to choose the patterns but somehow, other tasks and tempting designs took over and these poor patterns were forgotten…. for a while.
I recently organised my craft things and was re-acquainted with these unfinished patterns. I got the little boy pattern for free from Gloria & Pat Designs. It’s originally for pillows but I want to frame it so that it may adorn my kids’ room. It requires a lot of effort to finish and I am 70% on the way. If I could only identify the substitute floss…. You see, I was so excited to start stitching that I didn’t mind substituting the floss with a nearly identical colour. Then I must have used the floss in another project & forgot not only to put it back but also to write a note about the floss number. A lesson to remember here – ALWAYS NOTE DOWN THE SUBSTITUTE FLOSS NUMBER!
The second abandoned project is from the Precious Moments’ Cross Stitch Books which I also acquired from Ebay, though I can’t recall the Seller. I have a few PM books and leaflets in my collection. But I find it hard to start a new one – I need to finish the little boy first. What’s keeping me? Other simpler projects, of course….
