"Ponder" in the back. Then "almost finished vacation project" in the middle and what's that up front? My newest from Ruth.
No it's not a mystery project. It starts with a coupon. Then, I went to the sale page and before you could blink I had ordered the kitty, threads and stitch guide. All while completely blowing through my coupon. Beware coupons when you don't really need anything!
These are the buttons that go in the corners. LOVE THEM!
Here's the big picture
And the vacation project - I'm taking out the tulips in the right front grass and re-doing them from lazy daisy to straight stitch. They look too big and bushy to me.
I have to admit that I'm somewhat tired after last night's "hair" marathon. So tonight I decided to do "simple" while pondering the elephant on the desk and where I should go from here.
This is my Valentines House that I took on vacation in May. I always seem to come home from vacation with my needlepoint not quite done. This grass is so easy it's almost like cheating. I like the beads on the roof line.
And here's the elephant on the desk. I'm just not sure which section to tackle next. So I ponder. But one must stitch while one ponders 😄 I'm liking that hair on witch #2 more and more!
Today I decided to go "back in time" to lesson 1 and put in some grass along the path. I have resisted doing this because it involves random stitching, but if I am ever going to finish this, the grass has to be done. There's a lot more to do...but it's started. Seems like there is grass EVERYWHERE. There's green grass, yellow grass and more green grass...
Then, there was witch #2 with twisted lazy daisy hair. I have worried about this since I got the stitch guide in 2015. Tonight I gave it the old college try - 2 hours of it - and decided that I was officially going OFF the stitch guide. If this looks a lot like witch #4 well I'm going to have to deal with it. My hair looks tons better this way. As you can see I started out with french knots and went rogue. Hey it's better than tent stitch which I guess I didn't need to do.
I'm getting down to the painful part of this project so I have no idea what I'll attempt to do next 😆
