Well, it's Sunday again and therefore, I should be changing my rotation project. I've been working on Beside Still Waters and here is a picture of my progress.
I've actually gotten quite a bit done on this, in the lower right corner. I think I'm going to continue to work on it while I watch the Olympics. The Hoosier Stitchers group has issued a 'challenge' of a project to work on while watching the Olympics and I've chosen this one.
Here is the next item on my rotation.
This is a kit I got a LONG time ago from an online friend in Australia. As you can see, I didn't get far with it, but it's a very pretty project.
I went back to the local bead shop yesterday that is closing at the end of this month and got even more beads!
What a haul!
3 packs of 8/0 seeds
6 packs of 11/0 seeds
Daggers, in red, amethyst, green, blue, pink, and topaz
34 more tubes of Delicas! If I had paid full price for all of these beads, it would have been over $200, but I got it for around $50! I just could not resist! I made a list of the Delica numbers that I already had and made sure to buy ones I did not have yet. The colors are yummy!
This is called Cantata by Whispered by the Wind. I'm doing it 1 over 2 with WDW on New Castle linen (40 count) and I'm loving the way it looks!
We're supposed to get more of that icky white stuff tonight into tomorrow evening, 2-5" I believe. Yuck! I am SO ready for spring! Only 34 days until spring arrives!
At least the sun is shining today. It won't be later!
Allie says "whatcha doin'?"
It's so sad about the young athlete that was killed during practice on Friday. My heart goes out to his teammates and family!
Well, I'm off to either stitch or play in my beads - or both!
