Some WIP's to share
I have been really lazy when it comes to blogs, not leaving comments when I read others, and of course blogging here.
So, I am trying to be better about that!
I thought I would share a few photos of the two main projects I have been putting most my time into lately, My snowman, and mini sampler alphabet letter C. The snowman still has quite a ways to go until a finish, but letter C is almost finished, just have to finish the castle, then it is onto letter D!
I have actually made a few goals concerning my stitching for the year. I have decided to
1) finish two of the alphabet samplers a month
2) Finish one stocking/mitten a month
3) finish 1 page of the Abbey a month
Let me explain the stocking/mittens. The snowman piece I am working on is a tiny little stocking, and with it is 5 other pieces with cute little snowmen on them as well, 3 are mittens 3 are stockings I want to finish the entire set of 6, by finishing one a month. So, we shall see if that actually happens, but that is my goal.
Also I think I may be stretching it a bit by adding one page of The Abbey a month, but hey a girl can dream, right? It will at least help keep me focused and continuing with the stitching, I hope!
Here is mr. snowman, he is starting to look a bit cozier with his little sweater on, although it has holes in it! I have some fill in to do! But i think he is coming along nicely. For such a small little chump, he is sure taking a long time. I'm thinking that dark blue fabric may be slowing me down, if that makes any sence! I hate working on dark fabbies, it is hard to see the holes to put the needle through, and wih my Christmas tree up, it cuts back on my lighting, but that should be remedied today, as I am taking that stupid thing down today, then I shall sit nicely and comfortably in my easy chair and stitch the day away.
i made some changes to the little sampler, changed a bunch of the colors because I think the original wasn't done on white fabric, but mine is, so all the little C's were to be done in white but they wouldn't show up well on mine, if at all, so I thought I'd make them in varying colors of the ocean, blues and greens, I like how it is coming out. I should see a finish on that one very soon, today maybe even!
I hope you all have a very stitchy weekend!
