my older sister and i finished two cross-stitch projects many years ago. those are now framed and hanging in our house in the philippines. last year, i started work on my own stitching project, but didn't progress much, a combination of being busy at work and general laziness.
one of the things on my list this year is to be able to have something hand-made, so i resumed this project in january.
this is how it's supposed to look like when finished:

and this is what it looks like as of today. the cloth i'm using is actually baby blue, i just used some filters from flickr.
i usually work on it before going to bed. it helps me calm down, and i can do a bit of thinking while stitching those x's. therapeutic, they call it. anyway, here's to hoping i complete this by the end of the year. i'm going to have it framed and hanging on our first home (wherever that may be).
what about you? are you working on any handmade projects this year? share, share!
