From the very long list that I published a couple of weeks ago, I have settled on 4 or 5 projects to consistently work on right now.
Santa is taking priority as I have been working on him for quite a while and I want to know that he is done for next Christmas. As you can see, I have added to the red ribbon at the bottom of the gift below that diamond that will be the gift tag..
I have added several rows to the Baby Elephant blanket. You can see the beginning of its trunk and the ears are very noticeable now.
This apron is a project that I do at work when I don't have any students to help.
I didn't have two of the recommended colors and didn't feel like shopping for them when I have so much other floss so I substituted. I found this site to help me make the substitutions. Usually the first or second recommended color works well. When this is finished I will find another small project to work on. I have several stashed away.
I took out October Morning to work on also.
I have been working on this for a very long time. My mother started it years ago, but didn't enjoy cross-stitch. Unfortunately, I had to frog all of her work as she used the wrong color floss and didn't follow the chart. I would say that it is about 1/3 completed. I have added some confetti stitches in recent weeks so the progress is hard to see. You might notice the yellow flowers scattered by the fence.
Finally, I want to work on the Log Cabin Star quilt I am making for my daughter and her husband. I haven't added anything to it since last summer, but I am hoping that if I know it is on the rotation list, I will at least make the attempt to go to the basement and add a few more rows. Hmmm, I know that I had to clear off my sewing table again. Isn't that always the way? We were experiencing bitterly cold temperatures yesterday with a steady wind, so that was yesterday's clean-up project. Now I am ready to sew whenever I put my mind to it.
My son is here for the weekend again. He moves to CA on Wednesday, so I am not sure how much stitching is going to happen this weekend. When he was here last weekend I decided I wanted to celebrate his birthday (didn't know he would be back with us this weekend). We haven't been together for his birthday for a few years now and I know he will be alone this year too. I made him a small chocolate cake and Hubby and I sang Happy Birthday.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I might add some stitches to Santa today.
Thanks for stopping by.
