Spare Time

Do I have any? LOL

Well in my spare time I like to, of course, read. And then I like to cross-stitch. But this seems to be a winter activity for me. I guess when it’s 105 outside, it’s not as fun to sit on the couch and stitch. I do the counted and sometimes it’s really, really hard. But it’s always fun.

This time, I may have bitten off more than I can chew on this current project. It’s HUGE. I mean like ginormous. I’m doing a fairy. It looks like this:

Isn’t that gorgeous? My fabric is 36 inches wide to make sure I have enough for how large this is. I’m doing 36-ct which is, um, really tiny to say the least. And I’m stitching on linen which makes it even more challenging. But I really think it’s going to be beautiful when I’m doing.

However, I don’t have a scroll frame big enough to put the fabric on. Or I should say I didn’t. I talked my husband into making one for me that was as wide as the fabric.

It’s the world’s largest scroll frame.

I told you it was big. But I can attach it to my floor stand and then stitch without having to hold the frame. It’s sooo cool! Of course I’m only excited about this. No one else probably will be. LOL

So what do you do in your spare time?
