It's a holy heck mess up there with things scattered all over the place, but sorting it out is a task for another day. Today is all about keeping up the stitchy momentum.
This is a piece that I started quite some time ago and stupidly dated. I suppose that I will leave the 2012 on there, though, since that will be a reminder of when I started it...right?
I wish I could tell you when this one entered the stash, but I suspect that I might have picked it up at a Homestead Needlearts retreat way back when. I haven't one single clue as to why I haven not played with this one before, especially since it comes complete with a stitch guide!
You just knew I had to have a little LJP in the mix! I'm thinking that the little "ornament" chart that is included with the larger project might be just what I need for a quick and pretty little finish.
Finally...I think my eyes were definitely bigger than my ambition with this one. I thought it would be fun to knock out a cross stitched heart piece 'a la the Blossom tree, but this one is a bit more intricate and needs some thought as to threads. The linen is just too pretty for me to slap whatever I fish out of the bin onto it, so methinks I am going to take my time and colorize it properly later today.
That's the Spinster Stitcher Basket 'O Valentine Fun, kids. As soon as I complete a chore or two Stewey and I are going to see what we can do about making a dent in it!
Happy Fat Tuesday! Eat, drink, and do something decadent and then tell us all about it!
