More Roses

My time for cross stitching is more limited on Monday nights because we spend time together as a family for Family Home Evening.  We generally have a little devotional and have some kind of treat, although some times we play games together or do some other activity.  Last night we talked about David and Goliath and how difficulties in our lives can either be stepping stones or stumbling blocks depending on the way that we react to them.

I did get some time to stitch and I am pretty happy with what I was able to accomplish.  When I first started this piece I thought that the roses were rather tedious to stitch.  I must be getting used to them because I really enjoyed stitching them through this diagonal.  In the end I was able to put in four hundred stitches and made it down to the hat.
