Stitcher's Verse

I found this cute cross stitch project in a bag of stitching treasures someone was throwing away. I was tickled by the verse and wanted to share it with you all…

Stitcher’s Verse
Copyright: Cross Stitch & Country Crafts 1991

Cross stitchers are a different breed
The things we hope for, 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 colors 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 it 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
