Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

Back to a Rotation

Well, so much for my plans to grid up the Leporello last night ... it was quite late, so I thought I'd just stitch on an 'existing' project for the rest of the night, and start the Leporello today ... um, well, that was the "plan" ...

In reality, I started stitching Chatelaine's Egyptian Garden, and I couldn't put it down ... so I ended up putting an entire 10 hours into it, and thus starting back into my rotation, which is well overdue :) Here's my progress to date.



And now I may have a partner in crime stitching with the Leporello - I'd love to do a SAL with you, Jenna ... I'll drop you an email shortly and we can work out how we want to do that.

Which also reminds me, I also have to get my Macaw or Rainbow Lorikeets kitted up for a SAL with Carina ... as well as the Bordeaux Sampler with Leslie and Carol, it's gonna be a busy time coming up :) But what a wonderful group of projects :D

I've actually been getting over a small dose of a virus since Thursday (I had to come home from work early on Friday), so it's been a perfect weekend just blobbing out and stitching ... heavenly :) But tomorrow I'm on 6am shifts, and there's a loud party going off next door ... not quite so heavenly :/ But then I look back at my Egyptian Garden, and that heavenly feeling comes back :D

I am thankful for stitching - and all the sheer pleasure, peace and joy that comes from it.

I haven't touched a needle in days and my anxiety is through the roof, so I think I'm going to spend some quiet stitching time to myself this morning. :)

Egyptian Garden is gorgeous. I really love that design and with all of the blues, it certainly suits you well. I'm so glad that you had such an enjoyable time working on it. THAT is what stitching is truly about for us.

I'm glad you are feeling better, too. *hug*

Oooooo that is so beautiful!!! I just love the rich colors in this piece and your fabric looks fantastic with it! Another query as to what you are using! LOL

Glad to hear you're feeling much better. Stitching is sometimes the only thing that keeps me sane. You are going to have a busy time with all those SAL, but I can't wait to see the beautiful results.

Anne-Your EG is going to be stunning. I love your fabric choice. I've been holding off buying a Chatelaine and the more I see online the harder it is.

I understand 100% your feelings about stitching. I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't stitch, I'd be nuttier than I am now.

Anne,
The colors in EG are so gorgeous!!! I can't wait to watch your progress on this piece!

Are you going to stitch the macaw over one? I know you had talked about doing the lorrikeets that way (which would be gorgeous). Since I already started the perch over two, I'll just continue that way.... Looking forward to stitching with you!
