I always like to stock up on craft supplies in August before I go back to school. My LYS has an amazing summer sale every year and I usually hit up the craft store that’s in the same shopping center. I come home with a decent stash of loot that I put away and then I go back to whatever I was already working on.
Erm… That didn’t work so well this year. I have three garments on the needles and I told myself I’d finish at least one before I started a new project, but the allure of the yacht chart in Stitch! by Cath Kidston won out.
It’s pretty quick to work, especially now that I’m using a cross stitch needle instead of the embroidery needle I used for my last cross stitch project. I’m about half way through the chart. I was thinking of adding some lyrics from “I’m On A Boat” to the top and bottom because it’s such a small project, but now I’m not sure about that. It’s looking a lot nicer than I thought it would and that is quite a bit of extra work for some laughs. I haven’t entirely decided.
