drawing challenge / cross stitch

Cross stitch:

I live on the North East side of LA in the Mount Washington neighborhood.
It's a hidden gem.  Many native Angelinos don't even know this place exists.
I love it here.

For more stitches, cross over to Woolfenbell's place.

Rachel, I bet the slowness [process] of stitching this made you stop and feel the PLACE where you call home. I bet memories flooded through your thoughts. It is heartening to me to hear that you love where you live. Really, that is the way things should be, don't you feel? *smiles* Norma
