I am amazed at how fast the week goes by. It just whizzes past when I am not looking!
I am trying to tie up loose ends. I want to concentrate on things that have been sitting around waiting for a little bit of attention and get them out of the way. My sewing room is such a mess. When things keep falling off my table and I can't get to my sewing machine for all the junk piled on it, something has to change!
So I finished off the little strawberry that I started on my way to Spring Fling this year. I really like how my twisted cording turned out. I am using a new method and my sewing bird.
I took out the sunflower on my temari that was too big and sloppy. I put it in again even using the original threads. Then I started on the "obi" around the equator of the temari. I am very close to finishing this off. I've told myself that I can not sign up for another cyberclass until I finish this one.
I have put some time in on the Purple Thread Needle book. I have to finish this up as it is in the way on the floor of the sewing room. I should just have a day when I don't stitch anything and just clean up.
I started the back cover of A Case of Indian Ink.
I also started the Cherished Stitches Limited Edition kit. I'm not sure I like the fabric. It is a 34 count and the kit says to use two strands. The photo doesn't show the true color.
I think there is not enough room for two strands. So, what to do? I can change to one strand or substitute a different fabric. I'm kind of leaning toward doing both actually. The kit fabric is grey and doesn't do much for me. I enjoy substituting Hand Dyed Fibers for regular threads. We'll see...
