I have also made considerable progress on the Celtic Welcome Friends project. The 14 count seems really large! I would not say I am half way finished, but would like to finish this by the end of January. I have another gift project to go in its place so I need to get it done. I am very pleased with how this is coming along. I am thinking I am going to add some beading to it. Not quite sure, but there are some places where some little beads would be appropriate I think.
Part 3 of the Lizzie Kate Things Unseen sampler arrived this week. I am going to slow down on this project I think. I moved it to a bigger frame so I can stitch with both hands. The jury is still out on the Qsnap.
I am enjoying this project but am looking forward to completing it for some reason. I have never been fond of samplers so that may be the issue here.
I am wanting to do a quick finish so I kitted up Teaching is a Work of Heart by Lizzie Kate. I have some waiting room time coming up so I made this a traveling piece since it is small (3 x 5 or so). I will be doing it on a 28 count evenweave in Mushroom from my stash and using the Weeks Dye Works threads that are recommended. I should have used DMC from my stash, but it is only 6 colors so not too bad.
I added two more things (both kits) to my 2015 box. One of from Lenarte and is called Quartet of Penguins. It is only about 3 x 5 or so and is one white linen. Should be really quick. Will probably start it as another traveling project since it is small. The other is a kit by Glendon Place and Dinky Dyes. It is a learning piece that teaches how to sequence a fiber with 5 distinct colors (the words on the kit, not my words.....we will see how well I learn it). It will also be my first experience with silk threads and some more basic help with using variegated thread. All in preparation for my Chatelaine that I am anxious to start.
And speaking of Chatelaine. I make minimal progress on the Christmas Tree Mandala so I am not going to post it. I did a little outline stitching while waiting at the dentist office....not enough to write about.
I got frustrated with the Biscornu from Riolos so it is in the "probably never be finished" pile.
I did make a small start on another Biscornu using the thread that I dyed myself that I will share next week.
Thanks for visiting.
