By the way, have you all noticed the Christmas decorations and Thanksgiving and Halloween out in the stores? Fall is just around the corner. What a fast summer that was! Hey wait....it isn't even August 1st yet. We still have another month at least! Thanks goodness...I am not ready for fall just yet.

I am not sure how well these will show up on the computer, but if you can click to enlarge you will see some very tiny stitches. This is a wall hanging that I purchased in the late 70's at one of those parties that you have at home, like tupperware, only crafty things. I have a vague memory of stitching this early in our marriage. I used to hang it up at Christmas time every year. The backing has worn over the years and needs to be replaced so I haven't done much with it the past several years. I rediscovered it this past week somewhere amongst the rearranging of our house. I kept looking at it with my reading glasses trying to figure out how I ever made the stitches so tiny. I am sure it was a pattern printed on cloth and then you just cross stitched it, but they were much smaller than an ordinary aida cloth kit. I didn't take a picture of the entire piece because I just wanted to show the little stitches. It is the 12 Days of Christmas theme.
