When I was thinking about what project to work on this year once the “Welcome” project was done I was debating between a “horses” project that my Grandmother had gotten for me before she passed away and the “farmland” project that my mom had gotten for me soon after.  I opted to work on the “farmland” project and later called it “Mama’s Bukid”.  One would think that since I’m working on a second project again, I would pick up the “horses” project.  I didn’t and I wondered why.  After a bit of self-reflection I figured its because the horses project is HUMONGOUS!  And while the project as a whole is beautiful I would be working with a lot of browns and greens.  It’s just too similar in color to Mama’s Bukid and I needed to work with different colors.  🙂


My Goal for 2016 for cross stitching is to get the “welcome” project done and get started on my farm piece.

  1. your stitches are so perfect! wondering why you leave the long threads hanging….just curious! Love your work!

    • Thanks Helen! I keep them long in the front so that they don’t snag while I’m working on the back. When I’m able I’ll move them to the back to work into the back part. Hope that makes sense! 🙂

      • okay. it does make sense. I used to cross-stitch all the time but arthritis has slowed that way down! But I love seeing it and your beautiful stitches. Thanks for your reply! I will try that next time I work on a piece. Thanks!
