Another Christmas is upon us, and, as is "tradition" here with me, I once again find myself hanging my head in shame regarding the many incomplete Christmas items I had hoped to stitch in time for the 25th.
First off is this Dimensions Gold kit which I've admired for a couple of years and finally purchased from EBay. I opened the kit this morning just to glance at the charts, threads, and instructions and immediately felt my heart racing like a kid opening his gifts under the tree! That joy and thrill of starting a new project was slightly hindered when I pulled out the "pre-sorted" threads for the project and found this:
Can we say, "Ugh!" However, I'm undaunted and will persevere in untangling this "rat's nest" of threads and, hopefully, will start stitching this shortly. I mean, what's wrong with adding one more project to the ever-growing WIP pile, right? (Don't faint - this is the stack presently tottering next to my stitching spot:
Yes, I know, I do suffer from a case of SADD (Stitcher's Attention Deficit Disorder) which is why there really are do few photos of things actually FINISHED on this blog. Lol!
Aside from the stack there, I have a Scarlet Letter sampler calling my name over on my Millenium frame and stand. And, these three WIP's that are in various states of completion (or should I say various states of "beginning?)
Santa - can't you spare an elf or two who knows how to stitch to come down to sunny Florida and away from the cold North Pole?
