A Stitcher's Verse

Cross Stitchers are a different breed~
The things we hope for,the things we "need"
We wish for floss to finish that row.
We sometimes wish our guests would just go!
We wait all day for that time to be~
That special time ~ that time for ME.
Each needle is threaded,the colors arrayed,
Scissors and chart have been carefully laid.
Now we relax, this is our pleasure~
Stitching this piece of soon-to-be treasure.
We always ignore that mental warning~
Stitching all night makes it rough in the morning.
But time's unimportant, we don't heed clocks
We just need floss and a sewing box.
Our project awaits us, now we proceed
This must be heaven~what more could we need?!
A cross stitching pen pal sent me this little poem, and I thought it was so cute, so I thought I would share it with you all. Well, I will be posting pictures later today. I didn't quite get to my half way mark last night, on Home Love Joy, by the time I got off the computer I was too tired to stitch, I put a few stitches in, realized I messed up earlier on that section, had to find the mistake and frogged it all out, and by the time I was done with that, I was really too tired to keep stitching, so I just put it away, and will work on it today, as I don't go into work until much later today, I have about 6 hours to get some done, then tomorrow starts my 3 day weekend! YIPPEE!
I am going to get some pictures scanned in of Snow Valley Express, though, and maybe If I can finish the top half of L,H,J, I will scan that in too. I am sure I can, unless I find anymore mistakes that had previously gone unnoticed, I am sure it will only take me about 30-45 minutes to complete the top half, that is how close I am!
More later!
