I have been crocheting steadily ever since finishing my last cross-stitch pattern, Woodland Enchantress. I have done baby blankets and snowflakes, and basically just putzed around with my hooks and the vast yarn stash I have in the back room.
Now, I am feeling the need to go back to my cross stitch. Silly, when I think about it. I should crochet in the winter months, when my work in progress can sit across my lap and keep me warm, and do needlepoint in the summer, when I don't want anything touching me.
Anyway. I am having a problem. A big problem.
Anyone who knows me IRL can tell you that, when I get it into my head to do something I am a machine. Nothing stops me, and I have been known to run right over everyone and everything in my way.
But something is in my way that I just can't seem to get around.
I can't find a pattern that fits all my criteria. I am getting frantic. I want something that is more art-y than cartoon-y. I want something that will suit the pieces I have already done. I want something perfect. And nothing is making me happy. I have found some wonderful patterns online, but I don't know that I want to wait for them to be delivered, then for me to be able to go to the store and get the fabric and thread....
I am so hard to please! ;)
