Another super creative title, there...
I got to do a happy dance on Thursday. I finished stitching Bless Our Home by Country Cottage Needleworks. I used the called for flosses and stitched over 2 on a 32 count linen, the color of which escapes me right now. I hadn't put the eyes on the dog, or the legs on the bird when I took the picture. But no worries, they are seeing and standing perfectly fine now.
Crabby All Year saw some heavy rotation time this week. I am determined to get the stitching done this weekend. I plan on leaving the stitching chair as little as possible. Yes, I'm stitching upside down again.
My Heirloom Nativity got a few hours on Sunday. I just have to finish up the line of text and I can move up to another band of specialty stitches and there will be shepherds above that.
On Monday I put more time into my L*K SAL project, Christmas ABC's. I am so close to finding that upper left hand corner!
And, since I finished up Bless Our Home, that meant a new start for the at work project. I started in on Something Wicked. Not much to show, but I'm liking the brown on the green. I think this will turn out very very well.
I've spent some time stitching on the StitchMate. Becoming a two handed stitcher is going to take some practice. Right now I'm kind of at the 1 and a half hands point. When stitching a row of /////'s, I can use my left hand on the back of the fabric no problem. But when I'm coming back with the \\\\\'s I have to use my right hand front and back. The stitches don't look so nice when I use my left hand on the back for those. I did try left hand on top for a while, but that drove me crazy!!! I'm much more efficient when I can't see what lefty is up to behind the scenes. Go figure.
Hugs and Stitches,
