Now that the blackwork sampler is done I'm getting back to my regular projects. Here is my latest progress on the Garden Spot Sampler. This is turning out to be quite a fun piece as well, although I am finding the colors called for rather, interesting.
The yellow that you see is bright canary yellow which I was cringing over the whole time I stitched that motif. I had intended to work on my Winter Queen last night as she is the project currently in my stand but I wasn't in the mood so I grabbed this one instead. I seem to have lost some momentum on my larger projects which really needs to change but yesterday was quite the day. I've never posted about this before but over the past few months I've been going through the joy of a divorce. Yesterday was my court appearnce to make everything final and all that actually sounded good was a nice glass of wine and a big box of chocolate. I managed to refrain from too much of the wine, I had a glass when I got home and then it was time to head off for my Thursday Sit and Stitch. Most of the ladies there were in the class for the blackwork sampler so being able to show off my finished piece did brighten my mood a bit. Most of them weren't even half way done. As I in the past have had the reputation for never finishing everything they were surprised to say the least. Before I started this blog I really was horrid at finishing my work. I had several dozen projects started and seldom actually finished any of them. When I finished Brittany's Quilt at a Sit and Stitch they teasingly stood up and applauded. :) Then I started this blog and the fun of being able to post my progress of my work and being able to see everyone else's progress as well keeps me going. Its been a far better motivator that real life ever could be.
Thank you to everyone who takes a moment to leave comments, I do love hearing from you all. I do my best to get around to yours but as most of my internet time lately is on my breaks at work I don't get through as many as I'd like but I'm working on it.
