Like Pulling Teeth

Well, not really like it. I actually did have my teeth pulled yesterday, so I’ve been kind of hunkered down today. Hence the late post.

Earlier this week, I spent some time working on my latest cross stitch project and I’m almost done with the center bit.


The little squiggle above it is the start of the W. I haven’t done a lot of cross stitching in my life, but am I alone in feeling like it’s one of those things that doesn’t feel like it takes any time at all, while at the same time feeling like it’s taking a very long time? What you see there is about 18 hours of my time and I am having a hard time wrapping my head around that for some reason.

Time really is a funny thing, isn’t it?

  1. I definitely lose time when I cross stitch. I pick it up and then it’s dinner time and I’m very confused because it feels like I’ve only done a little.
    Storm trooper is looking good though.
