So I've finished little ghost girl. And I know I *should* be getting my Stitcher's Escapes packet soon. I don't want to start anything big because I will need to do my pre-cruise stitching on that. And, of course, the project that is really calling my name is Cirque des Carreaux by Ink Circles. Not exactly a small project.
What to do, what to do?
So I wasted a few days fiddle-farting around on some hardanger cutwork. I've been meaning to try it for some time, knowing I probably had the ability, but not so sure about the guts. But I did it.
I know that red is not traditional. And yeah, it would have looked a lot better in white. But I had size 8 and size 5 on hand in red so, red it was. In fact, if you look closely, you will see that it is actually two different shades of red. Yeah. Real professional work here. But I started this knowing it wasn't going to be a go out and spend money on me kind of project. I am not even going to bother trying to frame it myself. I think I'll just leave it pinned to one of my tack boards.
In case I ever want to do some cut work for real. :)
But my packet still isn't here. And far be it from me to, you know, not stitch for more than 12 hours. So I've started my christmas ornaments.
That has to be a first.
I find myself wondering what ever will I be doing at 11:56 on christmas eve if I'm not rushing to get these done? I hope I don't get used to this. :p
