Argh... I'm itching to start something new. It's practically making me twitch. [No, I have not had any caffeine in weeks!] To combat my startitis I've pulled out a herd of stuff in progress. In the last week or so I've worked on more stuff than, well I generally work on in an entire season.
Here's where all my avoiding-the-new has gotten me-- sagas included -- you knew there had to be a saga or two, right?:
On my Quaker a la Six Mains:
I was all wiggly with excitement to start this back in 2006. And I love it. I love the colors. I'm having fun with it. Now, here's the problem. What I had planned to edit it to include doesn't "work" for me in these colors anymore. I look at it and can't believe I ever thought it would work in these shades. I don't want to not finish this, but now I have to find something to do with it when I'm done. Crap! I'm thinking about seeing if the George Washington house charity I mentioned a while back (Yes, I know I owe you info on it, but I don't have it yet) would be able to frame it if I personalized it to go with his family. Then again-- for Washington it should be red, white, and blue, right? Sigh.
On my HiH snowman:
The only saga is while I love stitching in Silk and Ivory I really wish I weren't xsing in it. I hate the jumbo canvas.
Oh my Beatrix Potter:
Somehow this month this piece just behaved so well. Even the beads went in smoothly! Beatrix must have known I was peevish with her. Possibly it also moved quickly because I really, really wanted to get to a big patch of stitching in the Vikki Clayton color --
I love it. I just love that color!
And finally the dragon.
He's made it passed this point -- I've yanked out the wrong stitches and replaced them, but trust me getting here was a love-hate battle. If you want to see the whole thing play out you can visit it at the Fantasy Stitch-along wanna join us? Just let me know. We're always happy to have new friends.
ttfn -- here's wishing all of us a very peaceful and happily productive weekend!
