With my son turning 9 months in December I feel he’ll really be able to enjoy Solstice so I have been concentrating on winter projects, which has been a fun change for me as I usually love fall projects.
First, I finally made it to the framer and picked up the QCB. This is a big event as you may remember it was the project which started this blog a year ago (Aug 31, 2010 to be exact). My purpose in creating this blog was to create a forum in which to share my work with people I care about and also to create a record of my progress to help encourage me to finish this particular large project. Too often I have heard my fellow stitchers complain that they give everything away and I myself also find that I forget just how many things I have made. I think this has been a success more in providing encouragement than in sharing-I just don’t update often enough (and it is a bit like watching paint dry anyway).
So for anyone just stopping by and for those of you keeping track-I’m very pleased with how it turned out (see photo below).
I also started the two mill hill arctic santa ornaments I got at the same time. The first is Greenland Santa, which shows Santa with a sheep I’ve done all the stitching and beading for that the second is Nunavut Santa and I’m just starting the stitching on that. I plan to do the finishing work on these (braided cord and felt backing) along with that of any other ornaments I manage to complete before the holiday season all at once.
I’m curious are there any holiday projects you have always wanted to see done-a table cloth, tree skirt, banner, a specific pattern or image (amish, birds)…?
