Sarah (my youngest son Jordyn's girlfriend) LOVES the video game Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time. I found a free chart on line of the 3 Spiritual Stones (part of a huge design). I asked if she wanted to try cross stitching it or if she wanted me to do it for her. She decided to try stitching it herself. She is stitching the 3 small parts first to practice before stitching the large project.
Here are the 3 projects so far. She completed the Goron's Ruby in 1 1/2 days (first time ever stitching). She surprised me by backstitching (with no lessons). I am very proud of her.
Second one took a week.
Third one also about a week and counting ... She would stitch more but is job searching.
Tonight she asked me to help her design a smaller Zelda project for her sister's birthday January 20th. I think she is "hooked" on cross stitch... She also knits and crochets. I told my son, she is definitely a "keeper"!!
