Awkward!

Do you remember the first time learning to drive a stick shift?  Trying to coordinate hands and both feet while staying on your side of the street? Well that was me yesterday!

Not driving but trying to cross stitch!!!! First I felt like I was all thumbs with the tiny gold needle.  Then I frogged a bit because I had my crosses going the wrong way.  Finally I couldn't seem to count to 5 successfully!!!! I think my 4 year old grandson could have done better.

However I persevered and seen  progress.  What do ya think? Babysteps I know but steps none the less!

LOL. That sounds like me and knitting a few weeks ago. I'm trying to make the Princesse Royale's bub a matinee jacket. It's knitted all in one to the arms which means 300 stitches. I wasn't capable of COUNTING 20 stitching before Attention Deficit (and what number comes next can I have a conversation?) set in! So tell me, what's a twig chair please? I thought you had finished the Spring Chair!
