Do you remember this old Peanuts comic book? I've had it in my book stash since 1965 (...ahhh, those were the good old days...)
Anyway, I pulled it off my bookshelves because I was feeling just like Lucy and Snoopy last Sunday - ready to do something FUN!
And you know what that means for stitchers, don't you? Yup. I STARTED SOME NEW PROJECTS! (Never mind that I currently have an undisclosed number of projects already started, needing to be finished - that's soooo not relevant.)
I had such a FUN DAY last Sunday, pulling out threads, cutting canvas and attaching it to assorted scroll bars and stretcher bars.
Once that was done, I sat down and figured out the basic composition of the pieces I wanted to stitch next. And that meant browsing through some of the stitchery books on my shelf - for pattern inspiration, of course. [Aside: Have you noticed the current Bargello trend that is popping up in all the stitchery magazines recently? Well, hint, hint...guess what I'm going to start stitching next? Just wait and see where I'm going with THAT....]
I've also got another floral collage started, but I put it aside to get my Barbary Coast projects done, so I need to get back to stitching on that piece. AND I've had an idea for creating a butterfly piece (another trend I keep seeing in stitching and design magazines) so I think it's time to get started stitching a butterfly design, too.
Oh boy, oh boy.... my favorite thing in all the world - starting a new project!!
And I've got several that I can't wait to begin. Well, those new projects are calling to me, so I've gotta go now and get to stitching... Talk to you later!
