A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
Each month we have to share the projects we want to complete before the End Of The World. For me, this will be my "18 in '18". Many of them are part of SALs so I will be working on them each month.
This month I worked on 4 of my 18 projects:
1. Donna Kooler - Zodiac - Finish!
stitched on 32 count Millenium Blue linen
2. Jardin Prive - Happy Hallowe'en Night:
stitched on 32 count Cognac Linen
3. Just Nan - 12 Days of Christmas:
stitched on 32 count Vintage Grain linen
4. Mrs Peggotty - Alice & The Flamingo:
stitched over 1 on 25 count blue evenweave
Measi always sets us a discussion topic each month:
September – How do you keep your stitching stash organized?
Organised chaos would be more like it! The problem is that I don't have a room of my own to store everything in one place. Instead I have a cupboard in the Utility Room, some units in the corner of the bedroom, a box next to my stitching table in the kitchen and a large chest in the Living Room.
Bedroom - WIPs not currently in the rotation, finishing materials, scrapbooking supplies
large framed pieces in the wardrobe
Living Room - charts, kits, beads, speciality threads, older items in my stash, magazines stored in boxes.
Kitchen - DMC, current projects in my rotation, book collection.
This bag holds the entire range of DMC in Floss-away bags
Finally, it's nearly time for the spookiest Hop on the Blog - the annual Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop. For this one, you send me an email saying you would like to take part. A few days before the end of October I will send you an email with a letter of the alphabet. On the 31st you must make a blog post featuring something spooky you have stitched (or crafted) and your letter.
I will list all the participants on my blog and we all hop around collecting the letters to form the spooky phrase - report back to my blog and leave a comment to win a prize!
