January seems to be the month to hop around from one project to another. For me, it is a little bit of wanting to finish what is started for the NEW year, but then... I get the urge to stitch NEW things! Oh well... at least I am stitching a little bit!
First is my 'finish' of Sachet by Needlemania. Tho I loved the design years ago, my fascination to finish it is long past gone. So, I hemmed and hawed and decided to just finish the one row I was doing... I can figure out how to finish it for display... so, here is Sachet (abbreviated) stitched on 32-count R&R Woodlawn, using Crescent Colours Grasshopper thread :
Then I decided to work on one of last year's SAL's some more... The one by Maryse Dupont. Here are a couple of shots of my progress:
And then, I felt like stitching on something smaller in count, so I started a project on a really nice piece of 40-count linen, called French Vanilla Swirl... and I really like it! I just picked out some DMC favorites to use. This is Walk Humbly by My Big Toe Designs:
And my last little bit of stitching is a piece called Sew Gigi by my friend Carol, of iStitch Designs. It is over one on a piece of 25-count White Lugana, using one strand of Hand Dyed Fibers Baneberry-Light silk.
So I might get a little more done before the month is over, but I at least met my personal goal to work on smalls for the Smalls SAL 2015 --I think I have that covered in the last post and with my Sew Gigi, and maybe Walk Humbly.You don't have to FINISH one each month, just share... Plus I am working away on ten WIPs for the year for the Turtle Trot ... Doing good!
I will be going to stay with my eldest and her family soon, as their youngest has to have Brain Surgery to correct a Chiari Malformation. It is very serious, so I ask for your prayers for the very best results and strength for all of us as we wait and during recovery. Thanks so much!
Oh ,P.S. I posted again at Birding Devotee today!
