A Happy Valentine's to all !Do yo uhave big plans for the day/night? Me? I'm working then going fabric shopping for the back of a tallis bag and the lining of a yarmulke. Woo hoo. I sure do know how to party!
Well, party or not, I was quite accomplishful over the weekend. I was little miss xs. First out of the bag was Beatrix Potter:
A whole motif got finished (beaded flower bunch)and another one (little varigated patch under the flower bunch) got started--
I figure Beatrix could get done this year. Since she's on the list of things I really, really want to finish this year, that's a good thing.
Also out of the collection of in process came my newest start (I think it's the newest anyway-- it's either this or the next item), SB's Joy in the Journey
I was working on this at a friend's family house and getting kibitzing help from a 6-year old. You see the heart in the sheep is supposed to be left unstitched but she and I agreed that it could use a little pink. She colored a stunning image of her house and kept an eagle eye on what I was up to lest I needed some more input on pattern adjustments. Gotta love little helpers!
Last week bought a new ornie and a little progress. I must be in a real brid mood. The week before last I finished the stitching on Miss Crescent's Red Bird:
I'm not sure it shows well, but the cranberries in the garland are a burgundy Kreinik and the popcorn is EdMar Boucle. I think she's really quite cute, and since she's destined for that mytical tree of mine my cute-rating is crucial.
Anyway, I finish the red bird to pick up Theron's Berry Bird
Yup, if you remember you JCS issues well you will note that I changed the colors on this. I guess I just can't leave well enough alone.
Also making an appearance in the light of day the end of last week was my Quaker a la Six Mains:
Can't see the Major Work? Well, let's get closer in ---
Yup, That bird head floating there -- I started that motif. Hey, at least I got his little eye showing so he can look around.
And last but certainly not least in the accomplishment round up, Ursula Michaels We the People--
I do so love stitching this! There's something so wonderful about seeing words appear.
Oh, I have to ask. Do you overpack for stitching adventures? I go to the LNS for the day and I look like I'm packing for a year in the Arctic. The stuffed bag below was for an afternoon od stitching with a friend--
Beatrix, Joy in the Journey, 6 Mains, We the People, Berry Bird, and new stash are all in there. Memo to Self: 3 hours of stitching does NOT require you to denude your hovel of WIPs.
Oh wait, you caught that reference to new stash. Welllllllll..... I gotta go. Catch you later with a report. Hee hee.
