Hi all, finally, I am able to update as I have misplaced my camera but was able to borrow one for this update. Below is a pic of a UFO that I had started a few years ago. I am working on UFOs on Tuesdays and this is really, really working for me. I had only laid about 7 stitches when I decided that I did not like working on the linen. Well, I managed to overcome my dislike and was able to put a good dent into it. This piece is mostly beaded and it's very difficult to place the needle when the holes are covered by beads, but I am persevering! and let's not discuss that crazy loop fringe edging...Mama mia!
And finally, below is one of my planned starts for 2012, another scissor fob from the Shepherd's Bush. The design is called "Sweet Stitches" - an apt name, wouldn't you agree? I substituted the called-for rice stitches with eyelets, just to break it up a little bit. I like it a lot!
I am thoroughly enjoying the making of these smalls. It will be very hard for me to get back to my samplers and other large projects!
Hope everyone is having a fab stitchy time!
