Yessiree, a genuine miracle. I finished an antique UFO --
This was, as you can clearly read, a 2006 RR. While ignoring the Lakers on Saturday night I accomplished the backstitching in the flowers at the top. Yes, I sent it off to be RRed without even finishing *my* part on *my RR. Be that sorry story as it may be, now it's looking pretty dran nice, imho--
To any Sassies who may be reading --- thanks!
To celebrate this grand accomplishment I promptly hauled out a new start. Behold my progress on SB's Joy in the Journey:
Are you overwhelmed with how far I've gotten? lol Me too.
Oh and last week I started another "new" piece --
Erica Michael's We the People
I haven't decided which blue to use so my 3 options are all present. And, yes, if that looks familiar to you from these fair pages it is becaiuse I have stitched it once already. I did it for my nephew and when my shop owner saw it she wanted one. A year later, off I go! Hey, the woman keeps me in stash--- I can stitch a little (especially when it's such a fun piece to stitch).
I'd have much more to show on those last two but instead of stitching yesterday I let myself fall into "organizing" my charts. They had been organized, then they weren't. They were mostly living in conglomerations on the floor or piled high on one shelf. I flipped though pulling out some categories of like things. The process will have to be repeated 4-5 times to get everything into categories, and then repeated (for instance a foot-deep pile of "samplers" need more fine sorting. Aside from wanting to be organized, this started because I had the bright idea that if I went though and truly got everything sorted that I would be able to ditch a bunch of duplicates. So far I've "sorted" about 2 feet of patterns and been able to ditch maybe 24 pages. Really? Was that profitable? Not even an inch gone. Sigh.
