Hi, everyone, how have everyone’s weeks been going? Anyone do any stitching?
Well, I hope you have all done more stitching then I have because I really haven’t done much. I don’t know what it is but I haven’t wanted to stitch. Okay, that’s a lie. I have wanted to stitch but every time I look at my stitching I just feel bored with it. I know I could just keep up a new piece and try stitching on that, but I’m not really in the mood for any of my other pieces. I think what might be a problem is the fact the piece I do want to stitch on and the reason I am kind of bored with it is that I’m doing so many colour changes or stopping and ending threads all because the colours are all over the place.
Also part of me is waiting for the set of new charts that I ordered. I decided to order some stitching stuff for myself as it was going to be my birthday. I signed up for a fabric subscription of 40 count linen, the collection has 16 fabric colours in it, which I think is a good decent amount, after all, I don’t have lots of space to store everything. The piece will each be a little bigger than a ‘fat quarter’. I got my first piece about a week after my birthday. Just a plain off-white colour.
Now I have never stitched on 40 count before, but have wanted to try for a while now. I figured I needed something that was small and kind of easy like (meaning just using cross stitches and back stitches). So since I am doing the seasonal series from Stoney Creek I thought it would be great to do a monthly series also from Stoney Creek so that they will go together. Now after looking at all of them, I thought the one that really only went well with the seasonal series was the ‘Bird of the Month’ series as in the seasonal series there is lots of birds and flowers and each month piece has a bird and some flower in it. So with my fabric collection, I also ordered the whole 12 charts of the series.
I think with me and buying charts, when I buy something I find myself wanting to stitch it right away and I can’t focus on any other stitching it seems sometimes. This is why I think I hate buying online, you just get have it right then and there you have to wait weeks for it to get to you.
Wow, now this seems like all I am doing is complaining, which I didn’t come on her to do at all, I guess I got carried away. So sorry to any of you who think I am complaining about online shopping or the postal service.
Well, I think now I should show you some stitch.
So what has everyone else been stitching? And who is happy that the snow is almost completely gone, at least for me here you are only finding snow in patches in the shade?
Happy stitching everyone.
