The first “Sinner Sunday” is over. I relized today that I spend more time planning what to stitch on ATS than I do actually stitching.
More border done (I love the border so much). And some more random sky bits & pieces.
Let’s see, in the upper right hand star thingie I threw in some Italian Stitch. Below it is a blue Rhodes Star and an Elongated Star. Another bird and in the star thingie below the crowned heart I did a Ray Stitch variation. To the southwest of that I did a Renaissance Stitch which turned out really nice IMHO. To the northwest of that stitch is a little satin stitch variation, kinda like little seed stitches stacked neatly and to the northwest of that is two Sprat Stitches stacked with the flat sides together. I’m not too sure about that one, I’ll leave it alone until next Sunday and see what it’s saying to me then. Not counting the borders I stitched 10 motifs this time. 10. Ugh, maybe I’ll finish by 2012.
Friday some stash appeared in my mailbox.
I found the 1724 M H Sampler in a clearance bin 1/2 off so that I had to buy and to make the shipping worthwhile I threw in two fat quarters of SMF. Both luganas, Treetops and Violets In the Shade.
And while I didn’t get to finishing on the last piece from the cursed MiraRR (me, the razor knife, mat board, and mat board cutter are no longer on speaking terms) I did finish #5.
This is Mirabilia Spring Queen’s bouquet. The trim is plain ol’ double faced pink ribbon. I’m a bit underwhelmed, but it’s ok. I wanted to do a rucshed for the trim, but I couldn’t get it to work. Boo hiss.
I backed it with some pretty blue crepe type fabric and I did manage to make some pretty pins to match for the top.
That’s about it for now, tomorrow I’m headed off to see the Body Worlds exhibit. And for my sins, sometime Tuesday I’m hoping to hit Home Depot and buy all the things I need to do a mini-remodel of Win’s bathroom. I’m so excited I could puke. At Home Depot, it would serve them right for making my life difficult (I tried to buy what I needed today… but alas I was thwarted. Story of my life.)
