I have no knowledge of ZhongShan, China, except that they make embroidery hoops there, apparently. While working on my cross stitch tonight I realized it was the first time my stitches were being covered by the hoop, then when I went to take a picture I found that this was the most interesting picture.
Yes, I am still making crazy progress on the Princess Diaries books. No, I'm not making such good progress on the knitting. I'm going to work on that now, though, before bed! I'm going to challenge myself to get this first hat done before I go to bed tomorrow, so I better get working on it!
(p.s. this is part of my 14 goals for 2014. You can view all my goals here.)
