A NEW START ON FUTZINGDAY

The bills and paperwork are completed, I am clean and shiny after a hot scrubby shower, the dishwasher is empty and re-loaded, and I'm twitchy for a new start.

What better idea than Ink Circles Chalkboard Mandala on Valor linen with the new Lagoon Gentle Art?
The colors are much more vibrant, I promise.  Alas, me and my craptastic photographic skills...I just can't quite caprite it.  Think minty/subtle olive grey green and deep dark blues and teals...

Hope your very own Futzingday is swell amd that the Ides have passed peacefully....


P.S.  No cleaning yet...I wanted to get all of the other stuff done before jumping in Thursday through Sunday.  I'm only going to tackle three rooms, but I want to give myself plenty of time to procrastinate further before calling in the professionals­čśü

  1. I really like your thread and fabric combination for this Ink Circles project, Coni. Cleaning is overrated; I vote for stitching!

  2. I can't wait to see how this one turns out, Coni. It looks different than anything else I've seen you stitch.

  4. I look forward to watching your progress. Starting a new project is like opening a new (64) box of crayons felt like when I was a child. (Maybe that's why I have so many wips.)

  11. Coni, what do you use between your q-snaps and stitching fabric? I just bought some q-snaps to try, but have been hesitant to use them for fear of ruining the aida cloth.

    1. Hello! I use strips of felt or fabric cut with pinking shears just to give a little extra oomph and to protect the stitches...especially if they're done in silk.

  12. What a lovely pattern, Coni, and in the Lagoon it should be striking. You may find this circle design sets you into
    a rhythmic pace that is relaxing. Enjoy.
