So this year on holidays instead of doing all the crafts like I have done other years, I read all the books. I had dusted off six books by the time we got home on Saturday afternoon. Boom. But I did finish one craft kit I had taken with me for these awesome colourful cards.
I decided not to do the backstitch (apart from on the owls beak) because I think life is too short to do backstitch on kits that don't really need them, and I felt this looked totally fine without it.
I did take a huge cross stitch project to do too, but I never got around to starting it. Decisions decisions as to what to do next.
