A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

Cross stitch


After only completing one project in 2018, I did much better in 2019 with a massive six finishes up to mid-November.

For 2020, I plan to try to finish Precious Dreams, which was started a few years ago, but I’ll do other, smaller projects between working on it. Hopefully that’ll give me the satisfaction of some finishes and enable me to stay motivated to finish the larger Precious Dreams.

I’ve pulled out a few projects to do, and made sure they’re all kitted up. I may sneak a couple of smaller Disney stitches in there too now that I’ve finally got the linen to swap with the aida that comes with the kits.
