New Year and a new project

Possibly thanks to my complete lack of grace I had a good start to the year with stitching.  The day after my last post I was walking down a flight of stairs, stepped wrong and rolled my ankle to the point that I was really concerned I'd broken bones.  Thankfully I had a 4 day weekend for the New Years holiday so I was able to put my feet up and rest, just turned out to be a really bad sprain so I dug out Sew Tote-ly, Love-ly and got to work on some hardanger.



This piece is the accessory holders for a thimble, ort jar, and scissors that will be attached to the ground fabric during finishing.  I've got all the accessories done to the point that I need to wash the linen and start cutting for the wrapped bars and woven stitches, I moved on to the main piece.


I still have more to go for the first pass, I got pretty far but I just couldn't stand cream on cream anymore, it was time for something new.  


I have several other canvas projects I really want to start so I figured it was time to get Twister out and try to get it finished.  I've got 6 more sections complete that I somehow failed to photograph but they're the bigger sections so the rest so move along quickly.  Even if I don't get it finished I'm trying to get the square complete before I put it down, the border will be a bit monotonous but that will allow me to move on to the next project, if i can find something to stitch, oh wait.  Did I mention I signed up for a class?  Berries Sew Sweet by Jackie de Plessis, Shining Needle Society is offering it and I can't wait.
