I am enjoying stitching this wonderful design but this block had lots of tiny x's. I made one tiny change. The mermaid was charted to be stitched white but she looked haunted to me so I changed her to a flesh color. As I am stitching, I long for the warmer temperatures of summer and the relaxing days at the beach. Here is a picture taken at Duxbury Beach here in my home town. I hope it brings some sunshine"y" warmth your way.
In my stitching chair I am working on exchange pieces, 1 down 2 to go, working on Lilac Pixie for mom's birthday, started a SAL with Carol and making progress on Block 4. Do you stitch in rotation?? I find that I can get more accomplished if I plow right through and not get distracted by a new project. I would prefer to work on only one thing at a time but there are some projects that are portable and others that are not. My stitching bag travels where ever I go (kind of like a security blanket) even if I don't stitch I know that I can. What type of project do you travel with?? Mine are usually small with fabric that I can see without lighting. Usually 28ct or 32 ct. I find that exchange projects are perfect travel projects. Well, off to start dinner and evening activities with the boys. Hope you find time for stitching this week! Happy Stitching!
