So - inadvertently following my "if it's a holiday, it must be time to post" I have a blog update today! (For those who don't know - tomorrow is Columbus Day. I'm not off work, but some people are and the post office and banks are closed - hence my description of "kind of" a holiday).
My local stitching group got together yesterday at our "list Mom's" house. Some people actually went to a quilting show first - I opted to just meet them for the stitching portion of the day because most of my day today was going to be taken up with football. I worked on "Six Fat Men" and got so close to finishing it, I decided to continue stitching on it last night and this morning at home (even though it's usually my "travel" project).
And while I was stitching a lot of white snow on that as a travel project, at home I was stitching mostly black.....
Here is my progress so far on "Love, Quaker Style" - it's an Aury TM Design. It's stitched on 30 count white linen and I really am liking the contrast. It's the first Quaker design I've ever done. I've been trying to complete one page at a time, but also complete full motifs if they crossed over onto other pages. However, it was kind of time to quit one night, and I just didn't feel like pulling out another project in my rotation, so I violated my own rule. I would say this is somewhere between 1/4 and a 1/6th of the whole project - I forgot to look how many pages it was total! LOL
Anyway - thanks for checking things out. It will be interesting to see how my travel projects go the next few weeks. I work two jobs (one M/W/F and one T/Th) and my travel project gets worked on during lunch at the two jobs. This coming Wednesday is my last day at my CURRENT M/W/F job, and then the following Wednesday is my first day at a new one. I'm not sure what my lunches will be like at that job to know whether I'll be able to stitch....time will tell!
Thanks for checking out my blog - I do appreciate it!
