so i powered through and was able to get this guy ready and prepped for some background stitching this weekend.
i've noticed that the downside to stitching a nativity set is that i always begin to dread stitching the background. the pretty canvas stitching goes by so quickly in comparison to the more drawn out background time.
maybe it's just my attitude. i reach the point where the only thread left in my kit is the background, and immediately i'm like "nooooooo i just DID THIS!"
here's the thing - i always appreciate the background after it's done. i can look at the whole canvas and say "wow, that really came together nicely, what a great complement to the design"
hopefully i can put this one in the finish pile soon! #tgif
