It's Saturday and I've got the walking done and have been to the Farmer's Market. It was so cool yesterday and today that I've worn long pants, in August. I've been a bit envious of those attending the Needlework Galleria in St. Charles this week. Classes, shopping, being with other stitchers and friends, meeting designers, wish I was there. But socializing usually means not much stitching so I am grateful for lots of stitching time.
There is one project that I haven't updated you on since June. That is the mystery project. One of the reasons I wanted to take July off was to work on this project as much as I wanted. I found that after a couple of hours, I needed to take a break and work on something different and smaller. I got a couple more pages of the chart done. But for each page there is about a week of confetti hell connected to it.
Here it is in June:
Here it is now:
I'm still enjoying it but I know I have to work on other things and give myself a break.
Basting is essential on a big project like this so you don't get lost.
I think I might get something fun in the mail today!
