I've been busy stitching
Well I've been working on several projects but I finally decided to drop the rotation, per say. I've decide to try to finish a few projects instead. So... I'm almost finished with beading of the purse. My EGA group started this as a weekend (or two) project. I have 3 rows of flowers left to do. But, I have to wait for my group to send the beads to do the "clusters" around the places where the green beads intersect. I really enjoyed doing the beading but I'm not very good with the beads. I end up popping them across the room. Thank goodness for little nephews (23 months and 3 -1/2 years) who can see the little beads from a mile away, well maybe not that far, but still they can find the beads when I'm in need.
I also got a new "club" project in the mail from Fireside Stitchery. I got the 1st installment for the Patti Mann Halloween Pudgy. I couldn't resist working on it immediately. I finished the moon and started on the cats. It is so cute, I can't wait to finish it.
I also got the July pattern from the Geometric club. It is gorgeous. The colors of the thread are lush greens. I can't wait to stitch it either but I still have bare branches to do first. I must stick to my guns and finish the bare branches first or I'll never finish it.
I worked on the Christmas Fairy for an evening. I'm almost finished with the dress. Since I've recently had a birthday, I've had to get reading glasses to see such a small thread count to stitch. I use to pick on my friends for needing readers to stitch and now I'm in the same boat. That's what I get for being mean to my friends. But the best part is that they aren't that strong only a 1. Back to the pattern, I'm liking working with the over-dyed thread. I like the shadowing that it makes.
As for my other projects, I have somehow lost the fabric for the rainbow birds that I was working on for my mother. I got it out of my bag to show my mother how far along I am. Now I can't find it. I'll find it soon; I hope. That stupid penguin stocking is moving slowly. I will be so glad when I finish it. I haven't worked on Mari's pattern in weeks. I really need to get busy on it. Sunday, I'm going to stitch for an hour or two on each project to see if I can get them moving or finished. I know that your not suppose to stitch on Sunday, but it is not work. Besides that is the one day that I am not running around doing something with my family or friends.
Finally, my sister Jennifer and I went to Shakespeares Peddler's to get the thread to finish the second version of Boo from Trilogy. I plan on finishing it today and posting it tomorrow.
