Good evening... ooops here I am again late :(
I try to be on time.. its really hard when I have seriously no concept of time... it just flies by. Today has been a rather odd day.. do you have them? Goodness... well I got up today and did not want to stitch... Jon thought I was ill!! I really have no idea why I just did not want to... well I just milled about, watched TV and surfed the net for a few hours.. hmm OK all day! And it was not until around 8.30 pm I decided I wanted to stitch again! OMG!! What a time to start something! ha ha
I did look at the 2 wonderful stitching projects I have on the go already... you know the Advent Animals and the wonderful Blue Ribbon Design... but I was craving color...
I wanted lots of color...
I know its really bad and naughty of me... but I started another project! Oh but this one is another happy design :) With lots of color! Eeek I am terrible! Dont worry I thought I would start this one and do a bit each day on my other 2 designs.. and stitch this colorful one as a kind of reward to myself.... hmm yes I am trying to justify me starting it! :(
Do you want to see my start then...
Ha ha can you guess what design it is? oooh If someone does I will send them a surprise in the post! :)
That is it so far!! ha ah a I am stitching it on 28 count Jobelan in ivory.... stitching over 2. It will grow and grow...a fairly large design... no more clues! Get your thinking caps on!
Oooh yes did you notice I have moved lue the sheep to a new 'field' now... ha ha with Blue on my fabric I call the fabric a field! Yes I know I am crazy! ... but happy with it!!
So today is Friday Night With Friends... I love doing this as its such a cool feeling knowing other stitchers and sewers all over the world are making things too... wonderful :)
Thanks once again to Cheryl at Gone Stitchin' for organizing this... :)
What am I stitching for this... my new design.. I hope to have it finished by the time the next Friday Night With Friends comes around! Oooh what an interesting thought!
Love popping around other stitchers blogs to see what they have been up to... hope those popping inhere are not too disappointed as I dont have a lot to show.. although Thursday I finished my first ever table runner... using applique .. I am thrilled with how it turned out.. does that count?
Here is is if you missed it...
Ooooh must tell you all about something I saw today... well as you all know I love Blue Ribbon Designs and visit Belinda's blog often. On a recent visit I noticed something just perfect for people just starting out learning to cross stitch or those who want to brush up on their skills..
