I made some decisions about my stitching over the weekend.
- I’ve been spending most of my time on stockings for Christmas and two projects that I really want done this year – the mandala and the fractal. Slow progress on most of them so far. But the fractal has been driving me crazy again and parts of it just don’t look good (to me). So it’s out of the rotation for now (and maybe for good). So I needed a new weekend project and looked over my list and then pulled out two projects. I’ve started the Florist for Hometown Holidays and I’ll stitch that on weekends until it is done. Here’s my progress so far:
This is the awning above the windows and the start of the Florist sign.
When this little piece is done, I’ll go back to Patchwork Sampler Serenity which I just barely started last year. It’s a Quaker piece. I feel much better working on simpler tasks on the weekend after working many hours on the elephant. I’ve moved on to the next page on that one too!
2. Needlepoint projects – I’m almost done with the second Moroccan stocking so I’ll need another needlepoint project at that point. I’m working on several smaller designs but they are not ready to go just yet. So I’ve ordered the canvas and Pepper Pot Silk for my next rug – Anatolia. Think red, black and gold! I hope to start that on June 1st.
Downstairs I will work on my small Madagascar rug and try to get that finished while I complete the design for the smaller projects – Kurd Tree of Life, an Irish tile, and a Paisley design. Whichever one grabs and holds my attention first will get started next month too. Never a dull moment here.
