童年故事 - Childhood Story
This is the simplest cross-stitch piece Ric purchased off Taobao - a China-based website. There is another 5 pieces which will take many years to complete as they were all full-frame stitches - it would be tiresome but awesome when completed. I can't wait!
It is certainly helpful when these new generation cross-stitch sets came printed with washable color markings, making the sewing easier as we need refer less to the instruction booklet for stitch count. It is a lot time-saving. Just 2 full months (20 Jun - 21 Aug) to complete this piece.
Of course, i got careless and smudged the top right corner of the piece with rainwater. It was therefore magical and satisfying when i could finally wet the entire piece to reveal its true, clear colors!
The cute picture says - "I didn't mean to make you angry." Which the girl replied, "But sometimes you just made me angry." Oh! So true and candid.
