twenty-five years in the making

i used to do a LOT of cross-stitching back in the days when rocks were soft and mist was in the air...

but then i found myself with not that much discretionary time 
and a lot less patience for counting each and every stitch twice...

there was one little project that i promised myself i would finish 
and it only took me 25 years to get around to it...
i LURVE that horse - she's a music box that i bought on a long ago trip to Estes Park - and she plays Mariah

the stitchery in the background was completed in 1989... 
the horses and teepees were six months worth of stitching, and the border was another six months... 

the little shelf panel only SEEMED to take six months - ha ha ha!!
whose bright idea was this, anyway?!?

cross THAT one off my list!!!


Way out West they have a name 
for Wind and Rain and Fire
The Rain is Tess
The Fire's Joe 
and they call the Wind Mariah
lyrics to They Call the Wind Mariah
