Mondays have become the most dreaded day of the week for me, so I decided to add a little holiday spirit to the day that marks the end of my weekend!
Merry Mondays will be reserved for holiday stitching, which will mostly be consumed with my 2017 ornament, but hopefully I can finish this long languishing peice from the Cricket Collection. I started it on 36ct which was too challenging even before my accident so it sat untouched. Maybe 1 day a week is just what this project needs to see a finish! The maiden
I have jumped on the posionous plant bandwagon! The Crone has purchased Nora's 2 new posionous pixies, the Mother Chatelaines Hortus Venenum the Poison Garden, and I have started Hellebore by Veronique Enginger a French designer who used antique prints as inspiration.
I am entranced by her designs and agonized over which one to do, until I decide to throw out all my plans and stitch the majority of them!
Her designs will become the backdrop to my stitching for the next few years, so in order to get some of my previous projects completed I created Finish Friday.
I will also devote 1 day a week to seasonal stitching, but more on that tomorrow! The Maiden
I pushed so hard to finish this project and now I feel so forlorn at it's completion!
Let it Snow by Barbara Ana Designs stitched on 28ct Jobelan Dusty Green.
I modified the flower in the vase, the charted version was 2 large blooms and I thought it was too heavy for the tip of a scissor!
I love the detail of the tiny pair of scissors she holds.
I currently have 40 WIPs, am stashing like there is a stitchers apocalypse and have recently come across a series of projects that will take years of focus to complete (more on that later). As my primary focus will be this mystery project I have devised a plan to rotate in other WIPs.
Finish Friday was born from the idea that I will work on the project in my pile that is closest to completion.
Next Friday I will resurrect the Kiss for beading and then plan to tackle Night Creatures.
