Happy New Year! I hope your New Year is off to a great start. This year I decided not to do a new project start on New Years Day, but rather focus on getting some finishes in. So, I worked on Mirabilia’s Siren and the Shipwreck up until December 31, 2014 and here is how I left her:
She has a body and skin and I couldn’t resist doing a little stitching on the chandelier. I will get back to her soon, as she is such a sweet stitch! On January 1st, I picked up Autumn Snowman. I can’t remember if I started him in 2010 or 2011. He is a pattern in the September 2010 Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. He is the third in a series and I am hoping some day to add the Winter snowman, too. I am stitching him on 14 ct white Aida and he is going so slow!
When I picked him up and started stitching, I noticed that the white thread doesn’t match. I had pulled all of his threads for other projects, so I had to start with new threads and the white doesn’t match the previous white. I have not had that happen before. Not sure if you can tell from this picture, but the bottom of him is more white than the rest of him. And it is going to have to stay that way as I am not ripping it out. The white is the most boring part of this guy! It doesn’t look like it in the picture, but he is about 14″ long, so there is a lot of white that would have to be pulled out. I have decided to live with it 🙂 It will be good to get this guy done and off of my WIP list.
So what project are you trying to get off your WIP list?
