I'm anticipating a quiet day of stitching. The boys are going to the Orioles Fan Fest, and I've decided to just relax and stitch today. There is so much I should be doing around here, I still haven't taken my tree down, but after the week I've had I would just rather sit and contemplate my navel while I stitch.
I do have a little progress to show you, so without further ado, here is Winter's Majesty
and a close up so you can kind of see how many color changes there are.
The confetti stitches are driving me insane. What I mean by confetti stitches is that there are tiny spots of different colors that make up the design, so starting and stopping all those stitches really make for slow going. I do like the effect so I guess I shouldn't complain! There will be outlining when I'm through the cross stitching, and that should really define things then. I can't wait to see the final product!!
Tuesdays I'm having a stitch a long with Mouse and Babs. I'm afraid I had far too much time on Tuesday and finished a few blocks. I know that next Tuesday I will be busy, so won't get as much done, so please don't be too hard on me ladies. Here is a close up of my progress.
I was lucky enough to catch my pal Alice on a day when she had some free time and we got together to stitch. I pulled out one of my "crazies" from last year that I didn't get to finish and took that to stitch. The others that I have right now are too big for a "traveling project" and this one is a little smaller. So here is my progress on Matter's Choice by Carriage House Samplings. I may have to work some kind of rotation because I had forgotten how much fun this is to stitch on!!
I can't remember if I shared about the lottery tickets I got for Christmas. I like to get the smaller denomination tickets, the ones that cost one or two dollars. I won nearly $60.00 on three one dollar tickets!! I now have a nest egg for a needlework stand! How cool is that??
So there you have it! I don't expect as much progress next week as I have a ton of Doctors appointments but I'm hoping that will slow down soon. I'll leave you with a picture of Tom, doing what I need to do more of! Have a great day!
