In the age of the computer and digital art people forget how time consuming, yet rewarding, things like drawing by hand and cross stitching can be. Here I am holding the cross stitched piece I designed, which I have been working on for a few weeks now. I have not started any new drawing projects because I hate abandoning my crafting projects in progress, but if I really wanted to get this done I could just sit in a chair and count the stitching as I go. Perhaps that would be the best way to finish this expeditiously, but I find that after a few continuous minutes of stitching my mind needs a break. I love the way that cross stitching looks, but this is not a project I can work at non-stop.
