Help Me--The Squirrels are Winning

The road to my crazy started with Sweet Adorable Clella.
That's not true, I've been a bit of a crazy for a very long time.
She wanted to learn embroidery. 
I found a cute little heart sampler for her and fixed her up a kit.

Then I found this on Facebook Marketplace and started researching on you tube.
The first video I watched was from Quilt Roadies.
I felt like I had found a long lost sister. 
I've watched every single video. 
Which led to some wool applique and a return to counted cross stitch.

So I went shopping. 
I bought this wool kit. I have it cut and ready to start.

I thought I should start with something small so I ordered this cut kit for my first attempt.
I'll write up another blog post about it.

After watching a few of the Stitch Roadies on You Tube,
I decided to return to cross stitch.
It's only been 35 or so years.
I partly blame my friend Dottie for the cross stitch--she told me about floss tube on you tube. 😉
I'll write up about this project in another post too.

So the squirrels are working overtime. 
I've acquired a few more kits. 
I've decided not to buy any more kits for a while.
Until I see one I can't resist.

Looks like you’ve got a whole lotta fun waiting for you! Now, that’s the whole problem...”until I see one I can’t resist”...it’s waiting for us right around the corner. And around that corner over there too. And that one... We would have to stay away from corners AND the internet!
