I Started It!
I started stitching on "Life's Little Tangles" at the beginning of this week. I haven't completed very much. I am doing it on 25ct, over 1. Started doing it 2 threads thick and then showed Jack (DH) after got a series of stitches next to each other. I was asking him if it looked "too thick". He said he's not an expert on cross stitching, but that, yes, it seemed too thick. So I frogged what I had stitched thus far. Probably between 30 and 40 stitches. I have that much completed now, plus some. I did start in the upper left corner as suggested. The finished picture this way will be approx 18" X 15". Jack wants me to put this one, when done, on a prominent spot in out living room. He also wants me to enter the finished product in the fair. I told him it would have to be next year's fair. Our fair is in August. I seriously doubt I could complete this before August of this year. I haven't scanned any pictures yet.
