I have been helping with VBS this week and have not had much stitching time. I could not think yesterday so all I did was work on the background until I ran out of thread on my needle. While I have a little energy today I will rethread it so I can do some stitching tonight. FYI: Gay Ann Rogers mentioned that she is thinking about stitching Catherine the Great. Something to add to my collection....
I have way too much going on, yet I started this bracelet. It is in very dark colors which is why I placed it on the back of a sheet of paper. (I should have realized that the writing would show through.) I don't think I will finish it because one side I stitched very tightly, while the other is loose. Since it is herringbone stitch, the second side is correct. It doesn't bother me to not finish this as I learned a lot. Maybe I will start another one in the winter.
I finally got all the basketweave done on this piece and started adding the theresicas. I really enjoy stitching them and deciding where to place them. I showed it to my family to get an opinion and my dh said he really likes this piece. That surprised me as I thought they wouldn't like the color scheme. My original plan was to give it to my mom when I was done. Will have to wait and see.
I have done a little work on Ghost Dancer. If I counted correctly, I have two more small pots to stitch. The rest remain empty. I am anxious to start the next step on this...It made me feel better to see the before and after pictures... I am making progress.
