'Pooh's Seasons' is finally done! I met the deadline of last week. I'm so pleased with myself. Eldest princess, Miranda, wants to know if she can give it to her Pooh-loving host sister, Liisa (from her gap year exchange) who lives in Helsinki. I'm thinking about it. Perhaps for Liisa's first baby, but not just to send out of the blue. There has been too much effort put into the project for that.
Meanwhile, I'm looking for a framer. I won't post more 'Pooh' pics until that job is done. I got a bit of a shock that the local framer staples rather than laces the cross stitching projects he does ...
As you can see from the projects on the left, I've changed the order of my finish list. I'm now working on Design Works' 'Dreamcatchers'. I bought this kit when I was going through a self awareness phase ... 'you are the master of your own destiny' and such. I got so busy 'mastering' myself, I didn't have time for cross stitching for a while. What is the point of organising life so that you don't have time for the simple pleasures? Fuzzy logic of the era, I think.
I was going to go to the craft and quilt fair last week, but didn't. I don't want to buy more stash unless it enhances the ability to finish a project already in the pipeline. I'm planning to have this attitude for at least a year. Thankfully, that approach (better, methinx, than the idea of no craft/stash shopping until one has finished 50 projects - I'd never buy another thing!) allowed me to enjoy a splashout buying threads this morning at Spotlight's 20% off sale.
Happy stitching. I've got to get back to my finishes. I have a schedule. LOL
