I came across this work iprogress while going through some boxes that haven't seen the light of day in a couple of years.
The issue date of the magazine is January/February 1987.  I'm positive I started the project right after I bought the magazine 24 years ago.  The pages are very yellow, thank goodness I made copies of the instructions way back when.
If my memory serves me right, my plan for this counted cross stitch was for a grandchild.
Well, I have 4 grandchildren ages 15 to 9 and I think by the time I do finish this they will be a little old for Noah's Ark.  Ok, I've got it - I have 10 to 15 years to finish it for a great grandchild.
I'm working on it in the evenings while I'm in my counted cross stitch mood however long it will last.



  1. You make me soooo happy! I am so glad to call you "friend" as birds of a feather flock together! lol

  2. your post gave me a giggle. I know that I have many w.i.p's packed in boxes. We would PCS to another duty station and I would pick up another hobby. I've stuck with rubber stamping for a while. thanks for sharing ~ Pam
