That Big Freakin Motif... DONE!

Hmmm I'm getting wanderlust again, I'm feeling the need for a little road trip! But where to go and who to see? I haven't seen Chrisanne since the fall but unfortunately she's got plans, we haven't managed to cross paths in months! I think its either been we've made plans and hit very bad weather or life gets busy.

Tonight I put in a couple of thread lengths worth on my model then picked Paradigm Lost back up. Finally I finished that big ass motif! I even managed to put in a few smaller motifs and have just stared one of the middle sized motifs.
I haven't decided what I'm going to work on over the weekend. Perhaps I'll get round 6 of my Fair and Square picked out and stitched.

Now for another Photo Hunt (I kinda abandoned these for awhile so I need to catch up). Photo Hunt #94 - Old-Fashioned
I took this picture in Old Montreal last fall. Talk about a contrast in technology, old vs. new!

I know that wanderlust feeling well, Dani. It seems to hit hardest in spring following a long winter stuck indoors, and this year winter seems especially long. In a couple of weeks I get to drive to Victoria, B.C. for a Victoria Sampler stitching retreat - the drive is one of the most exciting features, lol! Of course, the stitching will be pretty cool too. :D

Congratulations on finishing that motif. Lord, they seem to take forever, don't they? And yet, once done they just look... well, kind of innocuous. Sigh

Nancy said...

Your motif is beautiful. That picture says it all too. Have a good weekend, hope you find a good road trip.

Sharon said...

P.L. is looking good Dani! Congrats on making it past that big motif. Would you mind posting what thread you are using? It looks very pretty - love the bluish/purple combo. You probably have already mentioned it somewhere in your blog but I missed it.

Miokka said...

Congratulations on getting the motif finished up, it was a big one. PL looks so pretty, with smaller motifs ahead it will seem like you're making progress quicker now, as each one seems like a mini finish.

Hi Danni. Thanks for keeping on keeping on with my blog. I have a piece of fabric to give away & thought you might like to know about it. It's a Canadian-based design with maple leaves etc. Have a look. Put your name in the hat!
