A New Windsor man had a show which gathered all of his cross-stitch pieces--500 of them--for a show in his hometown. Once he hit 500 he wanted to see them all together. I just have the feeling though, if some crazy broad went over number 500 and wanted to hang them all up in the local Y, the local newspaper wouldn't have thought it newsworthy. Well, if I wanted to have my 500 projects covered in the paper, I imagine I would have to move to a tiny little town.
What I liked about this guy was how he put a mini-journal on the back of all his pieces. Reminding himself what was going on in the world and with the weather--are all old people obsessed with the weather? I ask because my grandmother always asks about the weather and gives me a dissertation on hers whenever we talk on the phone. You can imagine how boring this was when I lived in Los Angeles. At any rate, he must be a one-at-a-timer because he can do that. I mean how would I write a message about the ten years I've spent on Toy Gatherer, to name one? It's an idea, though. And I put it out there for you.
