I worked most of the day today but managed to get in several hours anyway.
Achieved a little Happy Dance - a little late but better than never. I was supposed to post my Christmas Exchange Ornament yesterday but I didn't actually finish it until tonight. I kept getting to a point where I think "done!", then I'd look at it and think "Oh, but this would look really cool right there!" and so I wasn't finished at all. I'm pretty happy with it. I'm very happy with the stitching, I'm just not so sure about my ornament finishing skills.
Sorry, no piccie tonight - I can't post until my person receives it.
The rest of my evening consisted not so much of stitching but of planning and then having a couple of those "Eureka!" moments, where everything just falls into place!
- I mapped out what I want for my JE Believe/Dream/Hope/Imagine set and then basted said mapping onto my chosen fabric.
- I played around with my fabric stash and decided I'm going to stitch the Mira Christmas Elf on a piece of white opalescent lugana I have. Debated over it for a bit but by the time I'd measured and counted and floss tossed and imagined, there's just no other option in my mind.
- I changed out the dove grey 16ct aida in my Woodland Enchantress kit for a piece of 32ct stoney point linen that I'm not so fond of. I bought it for Titania but I don't want to stitch her on it, now that I have it. I figure the WE is wall to wall, so I won't be seeing any of the fabric when she's all finished. I would just use the aida but I think the piece is a little skimpy and I like to have plenty of margin for framing.
I'll post a pic of my layout for JE tomorrow - need to charge the phone so I can take photos. I'm planning on getting some stitches in on the NC "L" for Lily... how many IHSW's have I voiced that intention? This will be the first time I actually get around to doing some! . . . unless the lure of L*K is too much and I end up putting in some more little exes into the ABC. LOL.
I hope you are all having a lovely hermitting weekend. I look forward to stalking the blogosphere for updates tomorrow!
