Lookin' for fun and feelin' crafty.

I went and bought some counted cross stitch and a small embroidery kit the other day. They're more complicated than I thought, so I'm gonna go back and get some easier ones. Gotta get my L-Plates first, I guess.

Feeling a little disheartened, I wracked my brains for something else to do. Then, I remembered the unfinished longstitch I brought over with me when I moved here. With great glee I set up the frame...and then couldn't find the canvas. I found all the completed ones, and the wool to be used, but no luck with the actual tapestry.


Alaskaboy found it last night, and I eagerly set it up on the frame...I'd done a lot less of it than I remember doing.

Wouldn't you know it, I can't find the instructions! We've looked everywhere that I can think of, and still no luck. My guess is it's hidden in some obscure place that's extra safe; still back at my parents' house; or chucked out during a cleaning session.

So, I eventually tracked down a contact email for Semco and sent them off an email asking if there's a way to get a new instruction sheet. If not...FAAAAARRRRRRK!
