Things are getting back to normal today. It's a new normal but whatever. I went walking at the Y. It was nice to see my old walking buddies. I prefer to walk outside but where I live that is just not possible all the time. The Christmas tree is all put away for another year. The new tile for the mud room is ordered. Son#2 and family have moved (again!). Secretly, I am glad that the holiday season is over.
Where am I? Well I finished the big motif I was working on with the Quaker Bag.
I have moved on to another.
Half the work is just deciding what color I'm going to try. I'm using some threads from a Brightneedle project. (I was going to say leftover threads, but the project isn't done yet!)
For this next motif it just occurred to me to use DMC 926. So I am. I did a fair amount of ripping. I thought, what if I made a note each time of why I had to rip out stuff. Yesterday, I would have noted that I started in the wrong place. Which is really a counting error. Note to self: don't start in the wrong place. This is related to the axiom, measure twice cut once. I should count three times, stitch once.
Confession: This is the table by my stitching chair.
I am going to clean it off this year. Really.
Hope you are enjoying the first weekend of the new year.
