Gasp! A new start!

So, I started a new project about a week ago! This one is a pattern that is in the magazine that I'm working out of for Snow Valley Express, and for some reason, one day I just decided to kit it up, and said "This way I will have something to stitch if I end up finishing the 3 things I am working on (Ornaments, Snow Valley Express, and The Abbey), during my move. Why I didn't just get into my WIP drawer and grab something else is beyond me, but I just felt the need to make a new start, so here it is! 

It is a native American Design with a Dreamcatcher with a  peace pipe, called "Web of Life". The verse says "Humankind has not woven the web of life.  We are but one thread within it.  Whatever we do to the web we do to ourselves.  All things are bound together.  All things connect."  ~Chief Seattle.

As you can see, I have not done much to it yet.  I am actually thinking about putting this in the place of the Ornaments in my rotation for now, because the ornies are nice small pieces I can work on, on the plane ride and car ride when we move. I have a long 17 hour plane ride, then will be on the road as we drive from California to Louisiana.(about a days drive!) So we shall see. I do really enjoy those little things, so not sure if I could stop working on them all together. I'm working on revamping my rotation a bit to fit this one in somehow!

So, yes, I was bad, and made a new start! I think I'm gonna blame all you guys who do the (I think it is) Crazy January challenge....the one where you make a new start every day or something like that? I got caught up reading about everyone's new starts and all of a sudden...wa la! I have one of my own! I probably woulda started a few more, if my Aida collection wasn't dwindling drastically. Oh well. Maybe that is fates way of telling me to work on projects that are sitting in my WIP drawer, Lord knows I have enough in there!

I think I am off to get a bit more work in on this one! I will be back tomorrow with an update on my Ornies!

Joyful Stitching everyone!

Sometimes we just need to start something new! Those WIPs will wait... haha. You must be planning on driving straight through to LA. We live in Phoenix, and it's 22 hours straight through from here. (We're too old for that kind of driving now!) Have a safe trip, can't wait to hear about your new location.
