I've been collecting pictures of pretty stitching on my Pinterest board, just for stitching stuff. Pretty stuff like this:

But one must make a start. So start I did. I picked up some remnant cloth in WalMart. It's a nice sturdy cotton, rather like a table cloth weight. Pleasant to handle.
The other thing I needed was my red binder containing all my embroidery floss. I hadn't used any of that floss in -- oh, my word, I don't know -- 15 years? I used to do cross stitch. Yep, the last cross stitch I attempted was a "new baby cross stitch" for Julia when I was pregnant with her. So ... over 14 years ago.
But I found it!
But my goal is to enjoy myself.
It's coming along.
