Yesterday I finally completed the heart cross stitch design on plastic canvas mesh, which took a couple of months to work on. Yes, I did not concentrate on it 24/7, but I felt like I could not work on any other art projects or crafts until I completed this one. This might sound silly to people who surf through hundreds of art projects and crafts in the same amount of time, but I am a one project kind of person, and I find I like to finish things rather than abandoning projects. I still have a beautiful cross stitched bird that I started on aida cloth twenty years ago, but I abandoned the project because my mom pointed out I needed to finish a research paper for my tenth grade English class. Over the years I lost the pattern to this piece, and it still bothers me to this day I have never finished it. So these days I am endeavoring to finish every project that I start, and I never want to leave one undone. For this project I double cross stitched each row so the composition would be opaque when held up to the light, which definitely took a bit more time than just cross stitching once across each row once.
