But first I have to show off the completed part 8 of the DT SAL!
Joyce was wondering which design this is, since I neglected to share that in my last post - sorry about leaving that out... (Go and check out her progress on her gorgeous Chinese Mandala, by the way!) The design is the Sampler of Stitches by Drawn Thread. It was published as a 9-part series of "chart packs" a few years back (2008, I believe). Each chart pack (included charms or beads where the design demanded it) was $10 or more, so I told myself that if I bought all 9 charts, I would really have to stitch the sampler! Luckily, a couple of my friends were really interested in stitching the project too, so we made it a SAL and that has kept as all fairly well on track.
Just one more part to go, iron, add charms and wooohooo! Oh, I have to frame it too? Kinda' like "finishing it"...? Oh....
Here is the pile of Grand Plans... Bitten off too much? Yeah, aim high and maybe finish one ornie, is my motto!
Well, have to stop babbling - time to get that ironing board out!
Happy Stitching and See You in a Bit,
