I am really looking forward to some stitching time this weekend. I've stitched a tiny bit on my autumn sampler, but to be honest, I have been so tired every night when I get home that I have been falling asleep in the chair more often than putting needle and thread to fabric. I feel really bad too, because hubby doesn't get home now until almost 9 at night, so theoretically I have lots of time to stitch...and instead, I have been snoozing. Maybe it's just that this was the first week back after the holidays and I'll get a second wind or something...
I'm thinking of stitching on Moon Garden tonight. This is a design from Blackbird Designs, and the pattern has been loaned to me since it is out of print. Because of this, I really want to get it finished, but for some reason, I just can't seem to get into stitching it. The colors are all very pastel shades...maybe that's it, I don't know. But I decided to give it all my attention tonight and see how far along I get. This is my starting point:
Saturday will be devoted to the autumn quaker sampler, and then on Sunday, I plan on re-starting Quaker Christmas 2. I started this one a long time ago, and didn't get very far (a theme with me!). When I picked it up again last year, I was really determined to finish it by Christmas. Then I finished the first page, and when I went to start the second, I realized that I had stitched it the wrong way on the fabric. I had the short ends on the sides, making it more horizontal like QC1, but it should have been more vertical. I just didn't have the heart or the energy to pick out everything I had stitched, so I put it away for later. Now later is here, and I have new threads and a new piece of fabric and I am just starting over. Let's see how far I come this year!
I hope you all have lots of time to stitch this weekend. Thanks for taking the time to come and visit!
