A good couple of weeks ago now I had the foolish idea to indulge in a quick little project to get the creative buzz that I have been struggling to find time for of late. I decided that a small cross stitch motif placed on a plain white baby vest was the perfect little undertaking for an afternoon or two; a quick and easy little thing of joy.
Every time I have the idea to cross stitch (about once every 12-18 months) I fall into this same false sense of security, for whilst cross stitch is easy enough, I never, ever find it ‘quick’. Somehow I allow enough time to pass between little projects for this truth to escape me each time. A week after I started, I finally finished this tiny pear motif.
I also managed to buy vests sized for a 2 year old, which I am blaming on tiredness. Baby Awesome actually turns 9 months old today, and is ‘helping’ me type by standing next to the sofa and bashing at the laptop whilst I repeatedly deleted the random characters he is placing in the middle of sentences. As he is so desperate to share a few words, I’m going to pass control to him for a few seconds. Hold on…

He’ll make a fantastic blogger one day.
This little project didn’t quite go to plan in either it’s intention or execution (I am pretty certain that the pear is slightly wonky, but then I guess they never sit perfectly straight… ahem…) but it did serve to break my creative dry spell, and I have a new project well underway and gathering speed, promising to deliver far more than a wonky pear.
