First of all, thank you so much to everyone for your wonderful compliments on the lighthouses. I really appreciated each and all. I smiled all week.
Today is TUSAL and here is my martini glass with a few less but just as inebriated threads.
Most are from the Lighthouse RR, several are from Snowflake Serenade ( also known as The Rip and reStitch piece) some from the latest Mirabilia RR and some from my "UFO to finish" project - Fairies at the bottom of the Garden.
Here is my larger ort container.
This is 3 months worth of stitches. I will add what few I accumulate in the next two weeks and then will start a new container. We are heading back to Canada on April 17th and so for the next 6 months I will accumulate my threads there. Let's hope that along with the threads I leave the blasted frogs behind.
My pathetic attempt at Snowflake Serenade is below.
I stitched the entire bottom section - lovely branches and needles only to be out 1/2 stitch. So most of my time was spent ripping and restitching. I don't know what it is with this piece. I think it may be the fabric. I just cannot seem to count down without missing either 1/2 or a full stitch. Hopefully, next week will be better.
Now that the lighthouses are complete I have picked up my next focus piece.
This is poor, neglected "Fairies at the Bottom of the Garden". I will work on this one until it is finished.
Umm, I did not stitch that much in the past week. There must be another before photo somewhere. I did finish the top left leaf, add the fairy and butterfly, yellow flowers and join the two sides together.
My plan is to work on Snowflake on Mondays, the latest Mirabilia RR on Tuesday and Wednesday and then Fairies the rest of the week until it is done.
And when I got tired of stitching, I quilted. Here is the quilt top for one of my grandsons.
Until next time, keep those stitches crossed and orts drunk in a martini glass ROFL.
