Apparently, being somewhat more healthy (although I'd recommend investment in Kleenix, Robitussin cough medicine, and cough drop stocks because I expect their usage to continue to grow) I was inspired (and obsessed) yesterday. lol I worked for the day at my LNS and we had a mostly quiet day. As usual, I'd brought along about 20 possible projects. Somehow I got focussed on the quilt needlepoint I'd been ignoring for a month or two. So I started working. And I worked through the day at the shop. And I worked through my friend's nail appointment after the shop closed. And I worked through several hours of old mysteries I unearthed from my pile of Jeez-I-Wonder-What's-on-Here videos. And at 4am this morning this is where I was:
Yeehaw! What can I say? When I get obsessed, I get OBSESSED. lol
I finally unearthed my Bride's Tree SAL house finish that I'd lost the picture for and reshot it --
It's part of a LHN piece from an old JCS (2002, I think). I did it in Splendor and Vikki Clayton silks
And I made a pair of Bride's February heart finishes --
This is one of the JBW trees in Belle Soie silk and red beads. I've wanted to do this pattern for a long time and was hemming and hawing about doing it when I decided I could make it work from the Bride's SAL by featuring that heart.
This is part of a Long Dog sampler that I did in Carrie's Creation "Surprise." Originally I was going to use it for something else, but I decided it would be a perfect heart for the Bride's set I'm doing for a particularly "colorful" friend.
And finally, a little progress on my final Bride's January house --
It's a Dragon Dreams JCS 1999 ornie. I'm waiting for the Kreinik I need for the roofs to come in. Oh, ok and I need to do the trees on the right and the door and a bunch of snow and the right corner holly garland.
I even made some progress on Americow --
I only have three more red and white rows, and cow legs, tail, and face to finish on this.
BTW, I am heartened to hear that so many of you also eat "in order." lol I think we're the logical ones!
And, Barbara, I owe you some badger pics. My little friends will be happy to be featured. It's a good excuse to do an inventory anyway.
Recently finished: Tony Hillerman's Skinwalker -- Excellent! I think it might be my favorite Hillerman thusfar.
Just started: Tony Hillerman's The Sinister Pig
Wishing I had: Another Nero Wolfe audio book to start and a really comfy, well-lit recliner and whatever book catches my fancy from the shelf.
