My new Millenium Frame arrived on Friday, and I wasted no time in getting a project set up on it (SO EASY!!) I was debating back and forth about what to stitch first on my new frame!
Friday and Saturday I worked on Cornelia Vsnderveer from The Scarlet Letter. Today I broke down and attached the hand dyed fabric for Mirabilia's Siren and the Shipwreck. I love this design, and I was dying to stitch something on the Murky Waters Lugana I had purchased a while back from Stephanie Bishop. :-)
If you notice, Seamus is nearby. He's very intrigued by this new contraption and I think he's actually a little jealous that it's been getting more attention than him!
I've even figured out how to "strategically" position my chart so I can watch/listen to the TV while stitching! Two of my favorite pasttimes.
Today I found a UFO which I hadn't worked on in YEARS! I started this Drawn Thread project, Tocatta #2, years ago in a special weekend class offered at Cross Stitch Cupboard in Fort Lauderdale.
I started having some trouble with the Japanese gold fibers, and stashed it away. But now that I'm older, wiser and braver, I'm really eager to get back to working on this one!
I'm up to Area 19 out of a total of 39 Areas on the design. It really is pretty in person. I plan to work on this in conjunction with my mermaid (Mira's Siren and the Shipwreck) and Scarlet Letter's Cornelia Vanderveer sampler.
