I am afraid that I do not have much to show you since my last post.
Saturday it was such a nice day that I ended up working in the garden. There is just so much to do at this time of the year and I feel like spending time outside after the long winter we just had.
So after all this work and being rather tired by the time I came back inside, I made a bad bad decision. I decided to stitch on the Pergola. Result: I ended up removing every single stitch I made on that day. It would have been much better for me to just rest and enjoy myself with a good book and/or magazine. I don’t have to stitch every single day after all and with Spring here, there will be lots of work to do outside and this girl needs a balance life, whatever that means (big smile).
What I normally like to do with my stitching is to have multiple projects going on at the same time, so whatever the mood I am in, I can usually find one that can fit the bill. I also love working on different techniques like blackwork, hardanger, needlepoint, stumpwork, etc. so I try to add some of those too.
I have this needlepoint project that I have just started. It is called Anasazi Dream by Carole Lake. Not that long ago, my friend Rinda and I have stitched Anasazi Song together and it was great fun. Rinda has also purchased the one I am now working on, but not sure if she can find the time to stitch the second one with me as she has quite a few projects going at the moment that she wants to finish.
Here are some photos I took for you. The first one is a photo that came with the instructions so that you can have some idea of what I am talking about.
and this second photo shows the threads used in the project
Here is a link to my other blog so that you can see Anasazi Song, the first of the two similar projects from Carole Lake.
I really feel like doing a bit more work on this project today so I will leave you now and get cracking 🙂
The weather is not very nice outside today so I need to take full advantage of it because with nicer weather, I will be spending more time outside.
Before I go, I almost forgot to give you Carole Lake’s website. Here it is.
Have a great day!
