My Christmas crafting seems to have slowed to a crawl. I was really hoping to finish this gift by this weekend, but alas that has not happened.
See that cream color. That is the last color of cross-stitch needed. Next is back stitching, stem-stitching and french knots. I am hoping to finish the cross-stitch today and move on to one of the other stitches. I have to admit that the stem stitching makes me somewhat apprehensive as it is being used more as a filler stitch rather than an outline. I have stitched all of these stitches before, but I have never used the stem stitch as a filler. Oh well, I will just have to dive in.
My Thanksgiving hand-towel is wallowing a little.
I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year and my mojo for finishing it has been lagging. On top of that I have failed to bring it along with me sometimes and then find myself with time on my hands and no project. I will be packing it in my car each day this week to catch a few stitching moments here and there. That is all it will take to finish this.
I am joining Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching this week. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
