IN WHICH WE FUTZ...ON A THURSDAY!!!

First I pulled out all of my cross stitch WIPs.  (Nope...not gonna count them.  You just can't make me.  Thanks to years and years of therapy and some industrial grade pharmaceuticals, I am OK with the fact that there are enough projects in here to last me eleventy seven lifetimes, and I'm just going to stay here on my glittery unicorn eating waffles while y'all contemplate):
(And no...not even gonna THINK about counted canvas or needlepoint stuff...let's just go down one rabbit hole at time today, Dearies!)

Then I pulled a few things for a half-heiney Spring basket:

And re-organized all of my cross stitch kits and charts into baskets for Spring/Summer, Fall, Winter/Christmas, and Misc:

And after a walk in the sunshine, a quick trip to the Michael's, and a cheeseburger at the FiveGuys, a new project selection:
The fabric is "Lemonade"...a 32ct Jobelan from Colour & Cotton, and I can't wait to give it a spin...especially since I enjoyed the last piece so much.  All threads are per the chart and DMC.

So that's it for me today. I'm going to go grab a hot and scrubby and then thread up and call it a day!  Hope your Thursday is swell and that you'll come tell me all about it!

  2. Good job on the organization! Coni, where did you get your baskets and did they come with the liner? I also like that blue storage 'thingy' in the first picture. Would you share where you got that? I am looking forward to seeing your progress on your new project. That lemonade fabric is a lovely color.

  6. I couldn't help but chuckle at your expression 'eleventy seven'. My mom used the expression 'fifty eleven' when she had too many things to do. Love your Jardin Prive choice. Hope today goes well and that you have a fabulous weekend!

  10. I just love getting organized...it makes stitching so much more fun after you clear out the clutter. I recently got one of thos 3 tiered carts at Michaels and have my WIPS in it. So much easier than hauling out baskets and boxes when trying to find things. Love your choice of project, it looks like fun! xo

  11. Love this pattern. Will look at adding to my collection of Jardin Prive patterns.:) The linen you used looks lovely but all this time later is sold out. Loving your progress. Happy Stitching.
