A New Start

I finally gave in and allowed myself a new start, though I do have other projects already started that could use my attention. I have started : Tour Des Marques (I did do one floss length on it on Saturday), Paradigm Lost, Pomegranates and Pears, Mini Cottages 5, and Cats in Baskets. I have two pieces at the moment I should actually admit they are UFO's now I do actually want to stitch them, so they're not in the I don't love you anymore pile. They are The Accolade and Celestial Dragon, they just keep getting put aside.

Now you're wondering what did I let myself start? Well I've had this kit for a year now, and its Christmasy! I started Mirabilia's Christmas Elf Fairy. I swapped out the linen and used 32 ct Opalescent Lugana, Precious Metals from Silkweavers. I think she'll stitch up quickly since this is what I've gotten done since I started it on Saturday.

Tomorrow I should give Tour Des Marques a little lovin'

I love that one, it is so cute! Don't you just love/hate that there are so many charts you want to stitch at once. I have 4 items on scroll rods that I try to stitch on and never know which one I want to stitch and I have another one I want to start too...ahhh, the life of a stitcher, such a wonderful quandry.

Your Christms fairy is lovely. If the rest of it stitches up that fast you will have it done in no time. Stay warm, my friend

Oh - very seasonal - I like the fabric you chose. There is never such a thing as too many starts. Is there? :)

Mindi said...

Beautiful start Dani, and I love the fabric you picked for her. I've been feeling an urge for a new start, but so far have been able to deny it. I really want to get a few other pieces finished first.

You've made great progress real quickly!

I really laughed when you said you had an "I don't love you anymore" pile. That's a perfect name for a few of my piles!
