Remember last time I promised to share a pic of my recently stitched Santa's Village piece, North Pole Post Office? Well, here she is. I switched a couple of colors... unintentionally. I'm almost finished with March Word Play from With thy Needle & Thread, so that will be next time!
ORTS … Did you see that Mary Corbet is an ort collector, too? She asked for her readers to comment on if they do, and what they do with them. Lots of interesting and funny ideas! Like this: I also had a friend whose elderly aunt kept a box labeled, “STRING TOO SHORT TO USE”
I love the feeling of accomplishment when a piece is done. I had a thought today of another reason why multiple WIPs may not be my thing. The Inspired Stitcher was talking about getting on a roll with one of her projects. My comment was “I think that flow comes from getting the eyes adjusted to the count and the tension just right.” For me, that gets thrown off when I switch between projects.
Were you like me with the 2013 Nashville revealing? I should be stitching five at the same time to ever get close to stitching my stash! Couldn’t resist Viktor and Irina and a couple of Blackbird Designs, too. How about you? Were there things you couldn't resist?
"They" say that everyone has the personality of one of the characters in Winnie the Pooh: I'm an Owl. Want to see who you are? At the end where they ask Gender, etc., click on No Thanks below Next.
I saw a home remedy for “some of the ails of Winter” here at Maggie’s site. Doesn’t look like anything that would harm you, and it may actually help!
Thanks for stopping by, today and always. I appreciate your thoughts and comments!
May 2013 be filled with Happy Stitching!
