good morning to you also. i used to do cross stitch. i enjoy the quiet time. i too found little projects in magazines & for a few years DMC put illustrated adds on back cover of my needlework magazines. you could get the directions free for a stamped self adressed envelope. small projects, perfect for inserts in a tote or a wall quilt like you have a pic posted. your forever project :)) ...i have a few of those too.
