This is Footprints in the Sand, the only poem (outside of Shel Silverstein) that I pay any attention to whatsoever. Just not a poet person. I’m not really a religious person either, but this one speaks to me. Always has.
The pattern is from Leisure Arts Leaflet 378. It took about 3 weeks start to finish using a sandy-colored 18 count Aida cloth, and one of these days I’m going to have to do it over again. There is a huge mistake, which is about all I can see every time I look at it. FYI, for those of you thinking of doing this pattern. It really does make a difference if you accidentally miss-count the lines. ‘Nuff said.
