Summer in Houston: is there a better excuse to stay indoors and Needlepoint? I think not! I have made a valiant effort on the stocking for Henry, but I have found myself distracted by a couple of other things! Kit Two of Tudors arrived and it has been great fun so far. I have completed the blackwork on the burgundy background and this weekend will attack the black and gold band on the side. I read the instructions tonight and was thoroughly confused by them, so, I decided it was time to quit for the evening.
Ruth Schmuff's Mystery Class Aquamarine is coming along well. I finished the seahorse (which I love) and started on the basketweave for the hair. Next will come couching the wonder ribbon....yikes!
And, I am rolling right along on my Keep Calm and Needlepoint canvas. I ran out of thread tonight, but should be able to finish it next week since I will wait to finish the next section of the Tudors before I come back to it.
All this to say that I have NEVER had so many projects actively working at the same time. I actually like it much more than I ever thought I would. Very odd, indeed, but the distraction of each one is nice.
Will take some pictures before I post next time! This is pretty boring, I know!
