Thanks for all the compliments on the quilt. I’m so glad to finally have it finished. And I’ve pulled out the next WIP that needs some attention at the sewing machine. I did manage to cut fabric for it on Saturday, but that’s as far as I got.
On the stitching side of the house, I haven’t been very productive there either. It was a rough week and so not a lot of desire to stitch. But, I did work on ATS last Sunday, as is the usual schedule. I came pretty close to finishing the sun, so on Monday I decided to continue on. I think Sunday through Wednesday I worked on ATS. Tuesday night I only accomplished half of that crown. Sad! But, I was glad this one got some extended attention. I’ll need to get back to that Peacock-colored bird next time. I do love that heart though, and I’m glad I had that to share today.
Thursday night there was no stitching, due to unforseen circumstances. But Friday I decided to pick up Valentine Rose (Anniversaries of the Heart) and spend some more time on that border.
By yesterday afternoon, I think I’d made pretty good progress. I decided to take a photo before I lost my light and had to drag out the lightbox. So, it does look as if I am stitching a fireplace rather than a house. I rectified that quickly though, and have all the bricks done on the lower half of the house now. And I have a confession to make, I love stitching bricks. I really do. There is something so soothing to me about stitching bricks. And I needed mindless and soothing this weekend, for sure. (Remember those Rhodes Stitch bricks on Midi Mystery 1? So much fun!!)
And bricks with variegated thread – awesome. Anyway, so I’ve been enjoying my bricks.
I will probably spend some more time this week on Valentine Rose, I need something rather uncomplicated, so I don’t dare pull out Mystery9 (especially since I have re-stitching to do and possibly more unstitching).
Hope you all have a lovely Valentine’s Day, and always remember to be your own sweetheart too – it’s good for the soul.
I am grateful for snuggles from my Valentine miracle and a husband who continually shows me how much he loves me.
