My plan is to focus on this...
I started Keep the Spirit by Debbie Mumm several years ago. I've always liked it and only set it aside because it is big and cumbersome. I was having trouble working on the dark blue in the evening, too.
Here, I can spread out and work on it more often than at home.
It took me a while to find my place and get any sort of rhythm but I've put a few stitches in and will show you when there is something to show. (Picture the above with about 6 more stitches.)
And, really, who can work when you glance up from your carefully created stitching nest and see this?
A wee thing I did manage to stitch...between being called into service for kitchen remodel duty was Tic Tac Snow by Miss Crescent's Crowne Designs.
I know that many people could stitch this in one day but it took me a week...or maybe even a little longer. I do have the snow flake buttons but they're at home.
I have also managed to complete some of the parts of my Homestead Star by Jodi Barrows. I needed to relearn the square in a square method so my start was slow. Luckily, I cut one of the hour glass blocks and realized I was doing something wrong. Glad I didn't trim all 80 before discovering I was not cutting quite right. I only made two of the neutral/red flying geese just to test myself. Only 78 to go.
In the mean time, between small bouts of stitching and sewing, I am loving this Florida weather. The news keeps talking about how 'cool' it is but for any New Yorker it is like a beautiful May day.
