YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.....it's done. It's finished. And I'm SO exited. Finally. Now I'll wash it and next week it's off to the framer. With a bit luck it will hang at the wall in no time.
While sitting here now since 30 minutes trying to say something meaningful...smart...whatever...while staring at the screen...I give up. "Coming to Water" is washed meanwhile and hangs to dry. And I'm brain dead today. I do have that sometimes - even more when something big is finished. While being overly happy it leaves also an empty spot - which I will fill in NO time though...lol. But right now I can't get my brain into working gear nor to get myself moving to do anything. May be I should have a look into my charts. That is something that tends to cheer me up.
Hmmm....what should I start next?
- Mary Wigham? I have all my supplies gatherered already. Found a MOST beautiful variant from a French stitcher, and will copy her color choices - sort of. She used DMC while I'm going for Threadworx.
- Christmas at Hawk Run Hallow? <---it's a must be. It's gorgeous. Chart will be sent my way somewhere next week. Not sure yet if I will do it on 40ct over 2 or on 25 or 28 count over one. I have to try out 40 count first (never stitched on that) to see if it's just as easy as on 25ct over one. I will most surely take the one that flows easier of my hands
- Alla Turca from Pelin Tezer- love it
- Floral Sampler from the Sampler Company - another one I'm deeply in love with - everything here to start it.
- Letters from Nora (G, M and S) hmmm...not all supplies here yet, so that has to wait a bit
- The Stitching Chair
- A Scenic Farm (will replace the 18ct Aida with 36ct linen)
- Amsterdam by Thea Gouverneur
Oh...and I have also an update on the knitting front. I finished the Jay Campbell square. It was a very interesting square to do. Stitching a square while stitching 4 sides from the outer end to the inner one. Was new to me, and I loved doing it. Another one that dearly needed blocking to look good.
