Sunday Stitches – January 2, 2022

I added a separate page to track the finishes on my Sunday Stitches for this year. You can find it in the blog header but I’ll add a link here.     I’ve added images of the charts I have gathered and put all in one bag for safe keeping that fit into my Songs of the Christmas Season theme that I’ll be doing for these projects.  I have 24 charts and actually when I was looking for something else found a couple more that would fit the theme which I will add in later.

My plan is to post on Sunday where I left off last time – so for instance – this is how far I got by the end of the day last Sunday on my current project

and then the following Sunday (in this case next Sunday) I’ll show the progress I made stitching on this today before I start stitching on it next week.  So Sunday Stitches/progress will only be posted on Sunday (and how many times can I type the word “Sunday”) on one page! 🙂

So this is where I’ll be starting out today on this project but I seriously need to do a few things around here before I sit down to stitch.

jackAlso, the search for Jack the other day – who is now on display for the winter- had me thinking that since I stitched on Jack almost exactly a year ago, I should start on one of his brothers – Harry or Henry.

So I pulled out Henry — these snowmen are very dapper dressers in their seasonal sweaters!  I love Henry’s reindeer sweater and his cardinal friends.   I will pull some floss for this today and this will be my project that I work on during my lunch hours at the office.

Counting issues again

I switched back to Winter Rose Manor last night and was happily stitching along engrossed in a program I was binge watching and you see all those six little pine trees – well I was stitching the main tree parts and then when I went back to stitch the trunks realized my spacing was off on them.  Rats!

Then I got a bit rip-happy because the top one and one of the ones in the next row were correct but I ripped out five of them rather than just four.  But got them all stitched back in place.   I stitched the basket/urn type thing underneath that motif to the right of the trees but ripped it back out too.  It’s tone in the Roasted Marshmallow color (the off white color that is the background of the octagon motif) and it’s fine when surrounded by other colors but in a little basket on it’s own with blank stitches showing thru it doesn’t show up enough for my tastes so I’ll just sub some other color in there when I have more of the stuff around it stitched to decide what color I want to use.

But when I pick up my stitching later it will be back to one of my Sunday Stitches projects.
