March is almost over, and I haven’t been able to record progress against my stitching goals for February. I have to confess, it’s not working for me 😦 It’s not that I’m not stitching or anything, but I find my creativity and sense of play are seriously hampered by setting myself must do’s about which projects I stitch and when. You were right, Gaynor 😉 So, without much ado, I’m ditching the whole idea (heaving a sigh of relief!) and reverting to my natural self – stitch what I feel like when I feel like. 😎
Now that I’m fully ‘fessed up, on to the happy things. Since completing my giveaways (and BTW, all gifts have arrived safely in their new homes) this is what I’ve been up to:
Here’s the Scissor Fob I made for my Tiny Treasures Partner Gillie. The design is a motif from Trellis, by The Workbasket
And this it the biscornu I received from Jean, The Slow Stitcher, in the Tiny Treasures Exchange. Jean included some lovely Carrie’s Threads (Concord). Thank you very much, Jean.
I’ve sent off my Tiny Treasures biscornu to my secret partner – sorry, can’t show you anything until it gets to its destination!
Apart from exchange stitching, I’ve been advancing on a couple of WIPs. I’m up to K with my Prairie Schooler Farmer’s Alphabet and enjoying it immensely. It’s easy stitching that I can handle at night when I’m stitch before bedtime.
And I’ve finally made a start on Trellis by the Workbasket. It’s a pattern I’ve wanted to stitch for a while now, and happy to report htat I’m off to a good start. I’m stitching with the prescribed Gentle Arts and Weeks Dye Works threads on 32 count off-white 32 linen.
I’m off to stitch now 🙂 Wishing you all a happy and productive stitching week!
