Look how much I've gotten done so far. Wait one minute...I forgot, I've cross-stitched for several hours this afternoon and have at least half of the leaves done on the other side. What a difference a day makes! (and a new indoor 'sunlight' lamp helps). Posted by Picasa

You sure do have a lot done! What I find with cross stitch is that you work so long and it doesn't look like you have much done. The thing is though, it takes time to make those tiny x's.

I've been working on my knitting lately. I'm starting socks for the first time, and while I am intimidated by them I am pursing because I want to learn how to make them. Right now I'm at the heel part...I think, at least for me, one of the hard parts.

When I get them done, I'll have a pic of them on my knitting/craft blog at http://kittenyarnsandcrafts.blogspot.com. I have there so far, a pic of the recent scarf I finished as well as some of the cards I've made (rubberstampped), and the sweater I made my nephew for Christmas. Since this is a new blog (last week) it will of course take time for me to get pics up because I need to make stuff first ;o) lol.

PLEASE give me more information about your new sun lamp, i have been thinking of buying one and would love to know feedback from one who has gone before me. TODAY is the 15th day in a row with zero sunshine! ITS TERRIBLE! We broke the state record per the weather man!

THE CROSS STITCH IS GORGEOUS!

I love cross stitching, I haven't picked mine up since before Christmas. Cross stitch is slow to do but I think the finished result is worth it.

Yours is looking great!
