Did you ever dream about crosstitching. I do all the time. I am obsessed. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and I am so tempted to get up and pick up that needle to get a few stitches in. I use to do this but I have fought the temptation since I have to get up so early every day and I would be exhausted. But its so hard.
Last year I bought this chart called Worlds Above by Midsummer Night Designs.

I have stitched lots of other things since but it keeps calling to me. I think it is the colors that I like, there are a few pretty colors in it that I have never stitched with before, and I couldn't stop thinking of them. Finally I fought temptation and started it the night before last.
Here is a picture of my work so far.

Isn't it pretty? It did call for 40ct but I am stitching it on 32 ct and it is pretty big. I can't wait to get home later to pick up my needle again.

I dream of having all the time I want to stitch. I love Worlds Above. Isn't stitching best when you're stitching something you couldn't wait to stitch?

What great new start on this wonderful design.
I day-dream about stitching all the time. When I'm driving somewhere I dream about what I will stitch on when coming back home, when I'm working at my desk I promise myself that I'm allowed to put a couple of stitches in when a part of my work is done, and when I'm stitching on something I dream of stitching on something else, lol. Aren't we all the same, lol?
