You were lucky! Now I did get into counted cross stitch for a while - but I'm more the "instant gratification" type of crafter...so after working for an hour and only having a little bit done with a TTTOOOOOONNNN more to do - I just had to give up that craft. But I think they are so beautiful when they are completed!!
