I absolutely adore cross stitching. It is what I would chose to do any day of the week and twice on Sunday. This is my cross stitch journal.

Renouveau - upstairs project
I have been also plogging along on this. In the evenings, I sit on the couch and occasionally glance at the TV while I am stitching away. I love this sampler. The colors are awesome especially given the fact that I elected to use the Gentle arts thread. I like the variations of colors when you are filling in a large area. There is a part of the the pattern that has a wreath on it. For some reason it has the initials or letters J D in it. I can't for the life of me figure out why. But considering the pattern directions are written French I probably will never figure out why. But have decided to change those out for my own intitals. Also the date on the pattern is 2009 and I will also change that out to the current year. Since I have had some difficulty with the wreath, I have decided to move on to other parts of the pattern. Especially since I think I have already ripped it out twice. I figure the 3rd time will be the charm.
