What have I been doing?Not posting a lot of stitching finishes lately – that’s for sure!How about you? Do you prefer to wait until your project is finished to show it, or the share progress as it goes along?Lots of people do show progress on their BAPs, or we’d think they had stopped, wouldn’t we?
Have you read any blogs lately that discussed whether you’re a process stitcher or a finisher.I don’t have this theory memorized, but my simplistic view is that you either stitch to be stitching, or you stitch to complete a project.I’m sometimes both but lean toward the side of process.I just love stitching!It calms me and keeps my hands busy – we all know about idle hands; right?
Then once in a while I run across something that I can hardly wait to finish, and that’s this Bird in the Hand that I’m working on.I like it so much… but think the fabric is a bit too light, so as soon as it’s finished stitching (today) I’m going to let it have a coffee.The folks at stitch night Tuesday got quiet and inquisitive eyed when I said that – only one suggested dabbing instead of dipping, “you can always dip.” What do you think?
I was inspired by a couple of boxes I saw at Primitive Betty's site and want to do something similar. Here's an update to show the finished box - right above.
Speaking of primitive, I had a little visitor the other evening after a sprinkle of rain, looking for some tasty greens in the back yard.
I finished the May OakHaven Designs monthly stitch along.
Not much more to share today, so I’m going blog hopping for a bit, then to finish that bird!
Hope you’re having a great weekend, doing things with the people you love most.
