After this cross stitch project, I was longing for something simple and easy - a one or two sitting kind of project. I remembered a deer head silhouette pattern in Issue 259 of Cross Stitcher magazine and knew it would be the perfect project to wind down after that last one.
This took a couple of hours of stitching while I watched Downton Abbey. I finally got into that show after about three tries. Everyone was talking about it so I knew there had to be something good despite the first couple of episodes that I found boring and tedious. Once I got familiar with the characters and what was happening I fell in love and watched the first two seasons in about 2 weeks. I just started season 3 today, so no spoilers! I have been avoiding any posts or facebook statuses (statii?) successfully so far. Also I keep saying Mr. Bates in my head over and over again. Mr. Baaaates. If you watch the show you know exactly what I am talking about.
I love this simple little projects just as much as I love the big complicated ones. Ok maybe not just as much, but close.
The stitching project I am thinking about for March is another big one and I'm excited to pick out colors and get started. Have you been stitching lately? Share a link in the comments - I'd love to check them out!
