Three posts in one day – clearly I am avoiding all the things I should be doing. Or, it’s just ’cause I can’t settle on any one thing today. I did a bit of cleaning, got to stitch a bit, pick up a couple other things and put them away, stitch a bit; there might have been a short nap in there somewhere too.
As I was stitching on the bluebird kit piece I decided after 2 days of stitching on it that I needed a break from that piece. I can tell just from that stitch that I could never be a full coverage stitcher. That is pretty much full coverage, it just is a smaller project. But I start a section and then sort of fill in that color in and then move to the next area that that color is used to fill in there. A whole lot of counting (and you KNOW how well I sometimes do with that). Yep, I must prefer the types of designs where you finish an area or motif. Part of the problem is the symbols used in the chart and the size of the chart – more difficult to read so I’m going to set it aside and take it into work and make an enlarged copy of it. That will be much easier to stich from and I’ll get back to it next week.
Anyway, this post is about what I plan to pull floss for tonight and even tho it’s outside of my “theme” I’m using for Sunday Stitches this year, it will be my Sunday Stitch project (which I will start tonight) this weekend and then likely be my work stitching project. I decided I was feeling the need to stitch something with sunflowers on it and found Sunflower Row by Annie Beez Folk Art in the stash. It’s a small project and I’m going to stitch it on 20 count so it will either fit in a 5×7 frame or be a pillow, or maybe a styrofoam brick finish – who knows.
So pulling floss I will go after I find a snack – one of the other things I didn’t do today is eat dinner since I had a late lunch but a snack is definitely in order. I love that house and am hoping that if I don’t have the called for colors I can find something close. The one thing I won’t be stitching is there’s a ladybug crawling up the farthest right sunflower – it’s 1 over 1 so that is not going to be included.
