Oh, what joy. What bliss!
First up is our class project...Challenge is Key. This is a pilot piece (not yet available) by Wendy Moore. It starts with the design line-drawn on 18ct mono canvas, and then all of the sections are filled in with counted canvas work.
This is the area that I played with yesterday:
And this is the area that I completed in class:
I think I have it in my head that I will play with this on Sundays. We will be given further teaching notes every other week with a hoped-for completion date of March, so I'm really going to try to stay on track.
I do want to add a few new things to my Christmas WIP basket, though, and hope to continue with the Pointsettia Ornament from DebBee's:
And this cute little guy from Handblessings:
Both of those are on canvas, so I pulled this piece to add a little cross stitch to the mix:
I've been hankering for Ms. Laura J. Perin Her Very Self and remembered that this was still in progress, so into the basket it went.
The only thing I'm missing is more cross stitch and more WIP's, so I think I will pull three or four pieces that are almost finished and see if I can give them a go. No pressure....but if I manage to complete a few it will be a good start to the holidays!
Rich has gone to work and I am in the Happy Chair with jams and my first cup of damn good. I am having some major leg cramping issues, so really don't feel much like doing anything. Maybe I'll just use today to catch up on some TeeVee viewing and continue stitching!
Hope your Monday is swell and leg cramp free. Do something fun and come tell me all about it!
