A Cross Stitcher’s Verse

DMC 6 Strand Cross Stitch Floss
DMC 6 Strand Cross Stitch Floss

Cross Stitchers are a different brand

The things we hope for, the things we need

We wish for floss to finish that row

We sometimes wish our guests would go.

We wait all day for that time to be

That special time – that time for ME

Each needle is threaded, the colours arrayed

Scissors and chart have been carefully laid.

Now, we relax, this is our pleasure

Stitching this piece of soon-to-be treasure.

We always ignore that mental warning

Stitching all night makes rough in the morning

But time’s unimportant, we don’t heed clocks

We just need floss and a sewing box.

Our project awaits us, now we proceed

This must be heaven

What more could we need!
