I am around and I have been stitching LOL, just not very much, my ereader is still pulling my focus but all is good, it is keeping me relaxed and not letting life get me down, it seems this time of year is always hard for me to handle. Anyway, I am kind of splitting my focus between 3 projects right now, I know for a girl who is a one at a time stitcher I sure like to fall off course, repeatedly. I do have reason for having three projects this time though.
#1 is Shimmering Mermaid from Mirabilia I have opted to only work on it on the weekends for right now. The area of the body that I am stitching it quite full of metallic threads and I was finding it really hard to get into it on the train and was having a lot of threads knotting and breaking and it was really pissing me off so I think until I get over this section I will leave it at home where I can fiddle more and spread my threads out.
#2 is Santa's Village by CCN I started collecting the design and was going to do the entire design on one piece of fabric once all 12 designs came out at the end of this year but watching every ones progress on various blogs I couldn't handle waiting anymore and had to start the project now LOL. I currently only have the first 2 houses so I will only be stitching it that far until I purchase the rest.
#3 is Woodland Goddess by Joan Elliott it is a long standing WIP and I put a couple stitching into it last month and finished the green and blue cape bits and couldn't remember why it had taken so long to get back to stitching it again so I will be stitching on it once I finish what I have to do on Santa's Village.
Well I am off to put more stitches into Shimmering Mermaid, thanks for listening.
