One day I’ll figure out that “quick and easy” concept

Christmas presents for my workmates. The theory was I’d make something quick and easy that I could produce multiple of in slightly different designs so I wouldn’t have to think about it too much.  Except that, as always, I forgot just how much time cross-stitch takes (about an hour per letter, in case you were wondering, plus another hour to do the backstitching and cut them out), and that realistically, by the time I’ve got home, cooked dinner, eaten dinner, and done the dishes, I only have an hour or so’s free time per evening, so “a simple little project I can do in the evenings” takes a LOT of evenings to finish.  I *just* managed to get them finished in time.

Next year I’ll buy them chocolates.
