Temporarily Stopping For New Projects

It’s unfortunate, but I am planning to temporarily stop the effort of finishing this Santa Slay crossstitch pattern. It is unbelievably so complicated and I am so frustrated that it’s been more than a year that I have neglected my goals of starting the new projects I have in mind. I am not permanently removing my thought of finishing this, but for the meantime, I want to satisfy my dreams of seeing all the nice patterns hanging on my walls.

Somebody gave a down payment for my room rental today so I guess I have a budget to start the new crossstitch patterns I just ordered.

The 3 cooking chef which I considered a small project that I know I can finish in no time. I can’t wait to hang it on my kitchen.

 And the Maiden of Four Seasons, which is quite a big project, but I know I can finish it before summer and I can’t wait to see them hanging on wall of my stairways going upstairs.

Plus, I still have the Angel of All Seasons to start, to put on my basement..,

I am replacing all the frames on my main floor and basement with my crossstitch projects. 

I am ordering more patterns soon!!!

Cross Stitch Thoughts

My mind is full of cross stitching projects. Infact, I ordered another new patterns online, even though I still have few pending cross stitch patterns that I haven’t started yet because I am so stuck working on this Santa Slay!!!

This Santa Slay pattern is sooooo unbelievably complicated and my patience is being challenged. In fact, I am already thinking of abandoning this project so I can start a new less complicated pattern.

Good thing that I still don’t have the budget to buy the accessories for the project I wanted to start. Money will come sometime early next year, and if this Santa Slay project is not yet done by that time, I might stop doing it and start a new one!!!

I have two cross stitch projects with completed supplies I purchased in the Philippines, but it is not my excitement to start it for now... I am more excited  to start doing the Angels of Four Season pattern that I purchased online last year, and I can’t wait to see it hanging on my wall!!!

I can’t wait until I see those cross stitch projects hanging all over my house!!!

Little Late Christmas Tree

I put up my Christmas Tree a little late this year, than usual. I guess it’s because I am working full time now and my mind is full of something else.

Well it’s about 21 days before Christmas so it’s not really late. Part of the Christmas light is not working so I have to buy a separate Christmas light.

I love decorating my house during Halloween and Christmas. It brings the spirit inside the house. A different atmosphere to celebrate with..

What about you?

Determination to Finished

Two Christmas have passed, and here I am still struggling to finish this Santa Clause cross stitch. I guess it’s my laziness or perhaps the pattern is really challenging. But whatever the reason maybe, I am determine to finish it soon!!! Because I have numbers of patterns to finish and I am so frustrated dreaming about it, all hanging on the walls of my house.

Many times that I want to give up finishing this pattern because it’s so frustratingly complicated, but I thought that everything is doing good in terms of the placement of each stitch. So why not finish it before starting a new one !!! 
I have stopped finishing few patterns but simply because I did a lot of mistakes that I just have to stop because it doesn’t look right anymore, and it’s just wasting my time. But this was before I learned that putting numbers on the pattern and on the cloths for guidance, makes it easier specially on large projects, like this one.  Everything is on the right spot so I am determine to finish it and see it hanging on my wall on Christmas of 2018...
