I have been working on this cross stitch rug for the music room in my dollhouse for about a month now, and I only have a little corner left to finish. I made a few adjustments to the original pattern - added a few rows to make it larger, and came up with my own color combinations. I will be a little sad to finish it, I've enjoyed the process so much. Sort of like finishing a good novel and having to say good-by to the characters. But in this case, I can peek into the dollhouse and enjoy it whenever the mood strikes me. I have another little rug planned to start when this one is finished. Sitting and stitching, looking out the window at the birds....quite a soothing, meditative state of being.
