It's all go, innit? I'm back with what I hope will be a monthly post to here, the WIPocalypse SAL. I was one that fell by the wayside on that one too, to here's to better things in 2016!
Quaker Diamonds has been on the go for a long time, not sure exactly how long but it's a lovely stitch. I chose a smaller count than Karen suggested and only use one strand of the Valdani threads. I've (almost) completed section 1 so it's been retired to the Cupboard of Hopeful Projects for a while and Anniversaries of the Heart is getting some attention.
So, slightly backward, I'm Gillie, living in Michigan for the past three years, married to the World Traveller who does, lol, and this year I am using the Marie Kondo method on my stitching along with other areas of my home. If it doesn't spark joy, then thank it kindly and send it on to where it will give pleasure. I have some charts and some kitted up projects that come under that category, my tastes have changed, the project is too big etc.
So, to help with my Kondo-ing........and stitching.......
I've continued on with Jo's lovely GG SAL for the second year and you may well find some giveaways of the above mentioned charts offered there......
and this one, Measi's SAL, Heather's Smalls SAL and a varied collection of SALs offered by the lovely Kaye at Kitten Stitching, not to mention a monthly smalls challenge and WiPs progress album over on Friendly Stitchers so I reckon I shall be soaring to new heights, don't you?
I am purposely not recounting my WiPs as the total might send me into a rapid decline and/or panic attack. I'm just seeing what drops out of the Cupboard of HP each time!
Thank you, Measi, see you again later this month!
PS when I was typing in the labels, the Cupboard of Lost Causes came up, think Hopeful Projects more positive, don't you?
