Or should that be bucket of doom?! Ha ha
Well hello wonderful friends... Seeing as I now have an enormous amount of time on my hands again I thought I would turn it into something positive. Yes you read that right!! Being stuck in bed is soul destroying so thought I would cheer myself up and do something rewarding and positive. I pulled out my bucket of dooooo....yes do! Ha ha because it's full of things I need to do or finish! Yeah!! Go me!!
So here is what is in the bucket of doooooo....
This one takes me back years! I mean years!! I loved the colours in it, and to be honest there is only a small piece in the right corner to do! So this could potentially get finished!
This was started oh so many years ago too... I love everything Egyptian, I find it all so fascinating. A little black outlining to do at the bottom and then the huge border to do! Ha ha maybe that's why I put this one down?! Again it was the colour that drew me to this :)
This is one my mum found for me... She thought it cute and liked the herbs. Me.... Hummmm maybe?! So I am sure one day this will be finished but not sure when! Ha ha
Awe.... I love this... The colours, the birds....everything. It's part of a series I was doing, with six already completed. I do like this so. Maybe I will pick it up again?
I bet you were all wondering where this little gem went? This is so very me.... I love everything about it.. Again it's the border, not sure what it is about them? They just don't like me and lose my interest! But I love this design so much I will finish it!!
This is my newest addition to the bucket! I love this design, it's just so very pretty...love the colours. I. Think once I start on the flowers it will be ok. It's like stitching a design backwards, maybe if I had stitched the flowers first the lines inbetween may not of ever got done! The lines remind me of the borders!! So stitching it this way. I know I will enjoy it eventually!
So that's what is in my bucket of doooo! I will plod along stitch here and there... Maybe I will choose one, finish that and then move into the next one? Good plan?
