I couldn’t help myself…
I have fallen under that evil spell that forces you to have several charts going at the same time. I use to be satisfied starting a project and finishing all of the stitching before starting anything new, but I am being taken over and I can’t help myself. During this last IHSW I didn’t stitch as much as I wanted but everything I did was stitch related. I have completely skipped over my to-do-list and prepared five totally new charts to add to my wonky rotation. They are:
1. Labor of Love-Counting Calories (freebie)
2. EMS-Champagner (freebie-have to change the year)
3. EMS- Rose Sampler (freebie)
4. Director of CS by Nickole-African Society (will cost a couple of dollars now)
5. Brooke’s Books-January Cake (1st of 12 also freebie)
While out to purchase a couple skeins of floss I just happened to see a clearance rack and lo and behold what did I find three (count them) three Christmas stockings for just $5.99 each, plus I have this Alessandra Adelaide Skull Banner I bought a couple weeks ago.
I finally found a nice frame for Kitty and it’s now on the way to Arizona. I forgot my sister reads my blog and she has already seen it, but she and Lucky are anxiously awaiting it’s arrival.
As for the actual stitching I did this weekend, I worked on the 12 Days and I have to say day 8 is by far the most intense. In that very small design there are lots of ¼ stitches which I think look better as ¾ stitches so it has taken longer than any other day including the swan in day seven which had quite a few too.
Last but certainly not least; this week I received this beautiful gift from a special Stitchy sister (thanks Irene); so this week has been a blast and I am so excited to start some new projects.
That sounds like a good idea so I’m off to make some more wonderful little xxs. Thanks for stopping by.
