C here!

It's an C

I have to say, these little pieces of counted cross stitch are a balm to my soul. They're simple and straightforward.  I have to go a little bit slower than with the Australia alphabet because I can't go in from the front and then under and then up-- i have to go in through the front and pull the threat out, and then up through the back and pull the thread out.

Counted cross stitches will understand what i mean.

Though it's been years since I cross-stitched, I do indeed know what you mean.

Yes, I understand completely. I kept all my floss and some cloth when I moved. I've wanted to stitch some monthly snowmen for years but just haven't gotten around to committing to the project.

It's all about the process! Slow and steady . . . it's good for the heart, mind, and soul. XO

Ahhh.... the dreaded up and down instead of under and up. That's the reason I can't stand to cross stitch on paper. I can't get into a rhythm with the up & down method and I find it horribly non-relaxing.

It's the pleasure of pulling the thread in and out and seeing the beautiful design emerge..
