Sometimes a Girl Needs Kreinik

I have been flitting around on projects lately, not being able to settle on anything for more than a few hours, and finding myself more frustrated than fulfilled by my stitching. The Crone said it was because I was not working on what I was meant to work on (this resonated with me). So I thought really hard about what was missing, and the answer was Kreinik! I do believe this is why I have so many Mermaids, I just have to have Kreinik! Hopefully I will have Internet in a few days and progress pictures will follow.

I have been busy bee. I started Masquerade (Ink Circles) and Goblin Market (gasp!) worked a Little on Hope (until the black silk on 40ct gave me a 2 day migraine), made progress on Sabrina, and for my Kreinik fix.... Mothers Arms! The Maiden

Traveling Crone

You have no idea how much I wish I could join the Crone when she visits you this weekend Mother! I hope between all the festivities you two find time to stitch!

My stitching feels too scattered and unfocused, so last night I pulled out a very old project that has never been posted and unfortunately heard "rippits" for 30 minutes from all the frogging. I Hope I can stick with it until it's completed (that is the only hint you will get, can you guess the project?). I needed a break from Sabrina and Goblin Market, which WILL be completed this year. I will post progress after the weekend. I have been feeling so blah at work that I am toying with the idea of taking tomorrow off and having a long delicious weekend of stitching (I love that I sound like I am 78 instead of 28)! Miss you guys, The Maiden.

One over One

So I just finished the tartan on my Atlantic Seaboard. Over 2500 stitches of one over one. I am excited at how well it came out for a first timer.
