Heidi, Kristy and I were discussing cross stitching on Skype one day. I said I would like to try something because I want to do Henry VIII and his wives. I think that would be way to big a project to be my first. Kristy found this book online and we ordered it for me to pick up at Border Books.

The pattern I most wanted that we saw online is not in the book. It was these children running after a double decker bus. Anyway, I like this one so this might be my first choice.

This is a bookmark, so maybe it would be better. HUMMMMM. Ok Heidi, which one should I try?

Now that is a hard decision! Although this may sound wierd coming from me....go with the project you are most likely to finish.
It's kind of like a do as I say and not as I do thing. :)

These are lovely Nancy - know you'll do a great job.

So glad you mentioned Heidi's birthday is soon - I didn't know the date.

Thanks for the comments on my room makeover - going slow but sure as I paint the furniture now. Luckily our weather is warm so I can open the windows - the oil-based paint has a rather strong odor and I need fresh air!

Nothing stops you people! You amaze me. I would be so completely intimidated by that. You go, Nancy! Make sure you take pictures and show us how you're progressing!!

Some of my early projects were All Our Yesterdays - such fun to stitch.
What a lovely book. Mine were in kits but it was all a long, long time ago.
