Well, is every one ready to ring in the New Year!! I am!! As I look back upon 2012 I have many fond memories, haunting dissappointments, and have loved and lost. I look forward to the hope of a new year and I am moving forward with optimism. As my final post of 2012, I wanted to share 2 finishes. One is a new start and one is a long overdue WIP.
|Diamon Quilt by Handblessings|
28ct Forest Mist linen
Recommended over-dyed threads
This WIP was long over due. Do you ever have a project that you set aside because you need to work something out on it?? You set it aside with the intention that you will get to it when ou have more time but that never comes?? Well with this sampler, I tweaked a judaic design that I found in a leaflet and slightly altered the dimensions in order to fit the lettering in. Then I needed to center the letter-- this is where procrastination set in. Well, I finally got to it and finished this Bar Mitzvah sampler for my son. (note the date 2010) I used gloriana silks and WDW over-dyed threads. His torah portion was about the ten commandments and his hebrew name means lion and courage hence the reason I chose this design. I was very proud of my accomplishment and couldn't wait to show him. His response: "That's nice but the date is wrong!!"" What are you kidding me?? Back to the stitching to do some frogging and recalculating. May be better to finish things in a timely fashion so that you can remember the right date. Oh well, all in good stitching fun! I wish all of you a very Happy New Year!! Happy Stitching!
